CASELET

CASELET

CASELETS, as opposed to case studies, are brief case studies ranging between 6–8 pages. Written in a more compact style with an appealing narrative, the caselets’ focus is on covering more depth in a given area. Every Caselet comes with a rigorously written teaching note. While case studies provide the width and depth required for a holistic analysis-based-discussion, caselets enable more in-depth analysis of a given managerial dilemma.
