Why spend your valuable time writing case studies? With Compact Cases, we’ve done the work for you! This customizable, reproducible collection features 44 succinct situations and role plays that cover a wide variety of training topics.
Topics include: Leadership, communication, negotiation, management development, team building, change management, conflict, self-managing teamwork, and more!
By definition, a compact case is a brief description of a typical organizational situation that requires change and improvement. For the purpose of this collection, the cases have been restricted to general problems faced in most organizations. For example, what are the leadership issues in an organization that need desperately to change in order to survive? What are the typical problems of communicating within a work group? How can employees with a variety of needs be motivated to perform their best for the team and the organization?
Compact Cases can help initiate the process of learning how to deal with a variety of organizational processes. By first reading about the situation and then sharing reactions to it, participants become aware of important issues and the various perspectives they already have about them. The value of the case can (and should) be stretched to include ways to improve a situation and action planning that commits participants to do something.
Compact Cases consists of 44 fully reproducible case studies in a 3-ring binder that cover a wide variety of training topics. Each case is a short hypothetical situation or scenario that poses a question or problem that participants must try to address or solve. In doing so, participants learn more about key training concepts. The binder is packaged with a CD-ROM containing all the participant handout materials so you can modify settings, dramatic details, or character names for any case in the collection.
