Bacie Case Studies.
British Association for Commercial and Industrial Education, London (England).
The terms "case study" and "case" are used in this study to indicate the description of a situation which is used as a basis for study and discussion. "Case leader" is used to indicate the person responsible for the learning situation; "students" are those who are there to learn, including senior managers of mature years. Case studies are used specifically for management training. The study of cases gives useful practice in: analysis and critical thinking, problem solving, decision making, judging between courses of action, handling assumptions and inferences, presenting a point of view, listening to and understanding others, and relating theories and policies to practice. Well-designed questions from the case leader and challenge from his peers stimulate the student's thinking and help him to gain insight into business operations. (CK)
