The Indian Institute of Management Case Research Centre (IIMCCRC) hosted its four-day 9th Case Method Workshop during 3rd to 8th March 2022. The 9th Case Method Workshop was exclusively dedicated to meeting the demand for handholding in case-writing. The workshop broadly focused on four themes: 1. Case Ideation & Proposal, 2. Developing the Case, 3. Developing the Teaching note and 4. Modifying the case after testing & publishing the case. In order to provide the participants with experiential learning, each module was interspersed with relevant assignments combined with feedback from experienced faculty.

The selection of the participants for the workshop was based on the submission of a write up on a case idea and a short bio. The event saw an active participation of professors, assistant professors, research scholars and doctoral students from various management institutions and other institutions from all over India. So, the workshop also allowed the participants to interact and network with academics from diverse fields of expertise and learn from each other’s experiences.

Feedbacks from the participants vouches for the success of the workshop, we quote a few below:

“There is some key take away in every session. Also, was amazed to witness the preparedness for the feedback session. Instructors came thoroughly prepared to guide the groups.”
“Although, all the sessions were informative and it is an eye-opener for me in writing an effective and interesting case. The workshop is an eye opener for me particularly the hands-on assignments.”
“I am a research scholar. Initially I was a little intimidated as I was attending the workshop with experienced faculty members. But, it turned out to be a great learning experience. I really enjoyed the discussions we had. The faculty members explained every aspect of developing a case very well.”
