Strategic Management Classroom Classics
Classroom Classics are ET CASES’ compilation (compiled from various sources) of articles, books, movies, and historical musings of each of the subjects in management discipline. Highly recommended and widely used, these materials can enliven the case discussions and analyses in classrooms if the intended rigour is intently followed. While every case provides the relevant content and a brief context, these classroom classics deepen the content and broaden the context and most importantly give case participants the right perspective by enabling them to connect the dots. While most of these classroom classics are must-reads or must-watch material to accompany a plethora of cases, some of them can serve as additional readings.
Benefit from the most defining and definitive articles in your subject/s. These articles, over long and testing times, have influenced not only the subject’s body of knowledge but also have become a decision tool for scores of companies and innumerable executives. When used appropriately, these articles can widen the horizons of the purported learnings of the case studies.
There are several books that are advocated to be must-reads for their influencing and impactful abilities. These books, when used as background material for the case studies, would not only broad-base the learning outcomes but also help connect with the big picture.
There is a wonderful connect between movies and management. Classrooms’ effectiveness can be enhanced quite dramatically when appropriate movies are used for complementing the course’s learning outcomes. If seeing is believing, several movies can be used to complement the classroom learning. While some of them can be used to orchestrate a particular theme / concept independently, several of these movies’ plots can be used to underscore the importance of several concepts / themes. For instance, if one wants to show the influencing power and the corresponding impact of Pygmalion effect (also called Rosenthal Effect), 1938 Movie, “Pygmalion” (Bernard Shaw) can be shown.
“Study the past, if you would divine the future”, said the famous Chinese Philosopher Confucius centuries ago. The Spannish-American philosopher, George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. The classroom learnings can be made to be long-lasting with relevant dosages of business history. While every theoretical construct / management subject is replete with history, an appropriate usage of them would enable the active learners to appreciate the depth of relevance of a subject, a concept or an event. A participant would be well placed to make a right decision in the light of relevant historical connotations surrounding a particular business decision.
Welcome to The World of Big Data!! Presented in small formats. If the future belongs to Big Data and Data Scientists, CASE MINING is ET CASES' endeavor to enhance the data interpretation abilities. Correlation is the superhero in the world of Big Data. While Statistics can help establish a correlation, in a dynamic and complex business world, the ability to connect the dots and correlate the seemingly unrelated data for it to become useful information, for effective decision-making is an important capability...
