Pakistan-Specific Case Development for the Advanced Management Course in Public Administration at the National Institute of Public Administration (NIPA) (Lahore, Pakistan, June 9-July 15, 1989). Final Report.
McLean, Gary N.
This final report describes the conduct of a project that produced a workshop on developing management case studies relevant to public administration in Pakistan from which six publishable cases with teaching notes resulted. The terminal objective for the workshop (that each workshop team would develop at least one extended case study plus a teaching note and include a signed release form) was developed on the basis of a needs assessment that included interviews with Academy for Educational Development (AED) officials, a review of previous consultants' reports, and interviews with the faculty and administration of the National Institute of Public Administration. The workshop involved a one-day presentation on case development; extensive individual team guidance and support in selecting topical areas and agencies to use, developing interview guides, collecting case material, writing the case and the accompanying questions, returning to the agencies for their critique and signing of the release form, making revisions, and developing and revising teaching notes; and the presentation of the cases by the teams for the primary purpose of identifying areas for improvement in the cases and in the teaching notes. In addition to the 6 case studies, the workshop resulted in a commitment by 13 faculty members to forward the draft of 13 more cases and teaching notes to the project consultant. The document includes a day-by-day description of the workshop design, a discussion of evaluation results, 11 recommendations for consideration by AED, and a list of 25 references. A variety of supporting documentation and the workshop evaluation forms are appended. (CML)
