Case Lens

Case Lens

CASE LENS is a video-product, based on movies, where the case author presents 4-5 questions for classroom discussion. They are based on well-known, popular and blockbuster movies that have very subtle, and at times substantial management-related purport. The movies are carefully chosen based on a thorough scrutiny of the underlying management insight. Although every Case Lens comes with a detailed Teaching Note, including an elaborate set of questions, the focus should be on connecting the core concept/attitudinal value to the various plots in the movie. These videos are highly effective with right amount of preparation – both from the faculty as well as the participants - and most importantly, with effective orchestration in the classrooms.

It should be noted that participants/ students are expected to see the movie before they participate in a classroom discussion/analysis of any of the CASELENS’ products
