Case study

Case study
This article is about the method of doing research. For the teaching method, see Case method. For the method of teaching law, see Casebook method. For reports of clinical cases, see Case report. For the Case Study (1969) film series by Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, see propaganda film. In the social sciences and life sciences, a case study (or case report) is a descriptive, exploratory or explanatory analysis of a person, group or event. Thomas[3] offers the following definition of case study: "Case studies are analyses of persons, events, decisions, periods, projects, policies, institutions, or other systems that are studied holistically by one or more method. Another suggestion is that case study should be defined as a research strategy, an empirical inquiry that investigates a phenomenon within its real-life context. The case study is sometimes mistaken for the case method, but the two are not the same. Case selection and structure[edit] Three types of cases may thus be distinguished: Related:  Multicultural Education in London

Introduction (essay) The introduction typically describes the scope of the document and gives the brief explanation or summary of the document. It may also explain certain elements that are important to the essay if explanations are not part of the main text. The readers can have an idea about the following text before they actually start reading it. Keeping the concept of the introduction the same, different documents have different styles to introduce the written text. For example, the introduction of a Functional Specification consists of information that the whole document is yet to explain. If a Userguide is written, the introduction is about the product. Fallstudie Eine Fallstudie ist vergleichbar mit einer Art Schauspiel mit anschließender Auswertung. Es gibt Rollen für Mitwirkende und es wird eine Situation oder ein (Problem-)Fall angenommen in der die Personen im Rahmen ihrer zugewiesenen Fähigkeiten und Handlungsfreiheiten eine Lösung erarbeiten. Das Ziel ist das Finden einer Lösung für ein Problem, welches bisher nicht oder nur unzureichend beobachtet wurde. Von einer Fallstudie wird in vielfältigen Zusammenhängen gesprochen, so z. B. im Rahmen der empirischen/qualitativen Sozial- und medizinischen Forschung, andererseits im Zusammenhang mit handlungs- und entscheidungsorientiertem Unterricht oder auch in Personalauswahlverfahren. Sozialforschung[Bearbeiten] Hier dient die Fallstudie der Erforschung von Einzelpersonen oder Gruppen. Durch die Methode der Dichten Beschreibung wird versucht ein holistisches Verständnis des Untersuchungsgegenstandes unter der Einbeziehung von so vielen als relevant erkannten Variablen wie möglich zu erreichen.

Data The word data is the traditional plural form of the now-archaic datum, neuter past participle of the Latin dare, "to give", hence "something given". In discussions of problems in geometry, mathematics, engineering, and so on, the terms givens and data are used interchangeably. This usage is the origin of data as a concept in computer science or data processing: data are accepted numbers, words, images, etc. Data is also increasingly used in humanities (particularly in the growing digital humanities) the highly interpretive nature whereof might oppose the ethos of data as "given". Usage in English[edit] Datum means "an item given". The IEEE Computer Society allows usage of data as either a mass noun or plural based on author preference.[8] Some professional organizations and style guides[9][dead link] require that authors treat data as a plural noun. Meaning of data, information and knowledge[edit] It is people and computers who collect data and impose patterns on it. See also[edit]

Tipps zur Vorbereitung auf Fallstudien im Vorstellungsgespräch - In der „Aufwärmphase“ versuchen die Interviewer, sich einen ersten Eindruck vom Auftreten eines Bewerbers zu verschaffen. Ein häufig genutzter Einstieg ins Persönlichkeitsinterview ist, dass ein Bewerber gebeten wird, die wichtigsten Stationen seines Werdegangs zusammenzufassen. Hier sind tatsächlich nur die wichtigsten (also für den Job entscheidenden) Stationen gemeint, etwa die Entscheidung für ein bestimmtes Studium, einen Schwerpunkt oder die bereits gesammelten praktischen Projekterfahrungen. Hier sucht der Interviewer in der Art der Antworten Hinweise darauf, ob ein Kandidat strukturiert denken kann, ob er eine zielgerichtete Motivation für den Job als Consultant erkennen lässt, wie er Teamfähigkeit bislang unter Beweis gestellt hat und ob der Kandidat die intellektuellen Anforderungen an einen Consultant erfüllt. Jetzt folgt das für die Branche typische Consulting-Interview. Lesen Sie im zweiten Teil, welche Schwierigkeitsstufen es bei Fallstudien gibt

Multicultural education Multicultural education is a set of strategies and materials in U.S. education that were developed to assist teachers to respond to the many issues created by rapidly changing demographics of their students. It provides students knowledge about the histories, cultures, and contributions of diverse groups. Multicultural education assumes that the future of U.S. society is pluralistic. Today, teachers in most urban areas face students from a variety of social classes and cultural and language groups. Multicultural educators seek to substantially reform schools to give diverse students an equal chance in school, in the job market, and in contributing to building healthy communities.[1] One of the leaders in the field of multicultural education, describes five dimensions of multicultural education: (1) content integration, (2) the knowledge construction process, (3) prejudice reduction, (4) an equity pedagogy, and (5) an empowering school culture and social structure.

Fallstudien und Projektbeispiele zum Change Management Wie läuft Change Management eigentlich in der Praxis ab? Wie arbeitet DIE UMSETZUNGSBERATUNG, was tun Winfried Berner und/oder Kollegen konkret, wenn sie bei einem Projekt im Einsatz sind? Das hängt natürlich stark von der Aufgabenstellung ab: Bei einem längerfristig angelegten Beratungsprojekt sieht dies anders aus als bei einer einzelnen Veranstaltung, bei einem Turnaround anders als bei einer Software-Implementierung oder einer Fusion, und bei der persönlichen Change-Beratung der Projektverantwortlichen anders als beim Change Coaching eines gesamten Projekts. Um unser Vorgehen bei Veränderungsprozessen zu charakterisieren, bringt es wenig, mit Begriffen wie "systemisch", "ganzheitlich" oder "strategisch" zu hantieren – auch wenn sie gut klingen und offenbar auch gut ankommen.

Education in England The education system is divided into early years (ages 3–4), primary education (ages 4–11), secondary education (ages 11–18) and tertiary education (ages 18+). Higher education often begins with a three-year bachelor's degree. Postgraduate degrees include master's degrees, either taught or by research, and the doctorate, a research degree that usually takes at least three years. Universities require a Royal Charter in order to issue degrees, and all but one are financed by the state via tuition fees, which cost up to £9,000 per academic year for English, Welsh and EU students. History of English education[edit] Until 1870 all schools were charitable or private institutions, but in that year the Elementary Education Act 1870 permitted local governments to complement the existing elementary schools, to fill up any gaps.

Was ist eine Case Study? - Unternehmen - Management - MBA-News - Das Handelsblatt ging an die Quelle und fragte an der Harvard Business School (HBS) nach. Hier wurde die Case Study-Methode erfunden, und nach wie vor prägen Cases fast das gesamte HBS-MBA-Programm. Darüber hinaus ist die Schule der weltgrößte Produzent von Case Studies, die sie auch weltweit verkauft. Ein Case ist ein Dokument, das in detaillierter, erzählerischer Form ein Problem darstellt, dem sich Manager oder ein Chef eines realen Unternehmens gegenüber gesehen haben. Mit den Augen des Protagonisten Werden wir einmal konkret! Eine HBS case study kann zwei bis 20 oder mehr Seiten umfassen, und beinhaltet einen Datenanhang, die "exhibits". Der Case präsentiert die Situation zusammen mit etwas Hintergrundinformation über das Unternehmen, was es erlaubt, die Situation, um die es geht, in ihren Kontext einzuordnen. Wie arbeitet man mit einem case? Das geschieht in mehreren Schritten. Könnte man mit einem Case auch allein arbeiten oder braucht es immer die Diskussion mit Anderen?

Letters: Multiculturalism and Britain's national identity | Politics David Cameron is entitled to express his worries about certain unprogressive attitudes on the part of some Muslims (Cameron tells Muslim Britain: stop tolerating extremists, 5 February), but he should stop castigating multiculturalism in the process. There has never been a fixed British national identity; contemporary identity of modern Britons is much influenced by multiculturalism. British society, culture and economics since the second world war have been enhanced and enriched by accepting the reality of multicultural pluralism. Multiculturalism has also greatly helped to curb the racism that used to be prevalent in white British society until very recently. It's also worth remembering that negative attitudes on such issues as homophobia and gender inequality are not confined to Muslims. Burjor Avari Multicultural studies co-ordinator, Manchester Metropolitan University • David Cameron may or may not be correct to value integration over multiculturalism.

Case Interview Questions, Management Consulting Being mixed race in Britain: our readers respond | The people's panel | Comment is free leilabridget: 'I'm still working my way around the cultural differences' I am a 20-year-old student from London of mixed English and Pakistani heritage. I was never that conscious of being mixed race until my mother died. Sowadally: 'I never knew if I was insulted by being called "Paki"' "Where are you from?" This, for me, is the crucial thing about being mixed race in Britain in 2012. Ougoala: 'I still know who I am' As the child of a first-generation Nigerian father and Irish mother and having visited both places to see family, it always struck me as to what I was deemed to be by others. And yet, I still know who I am. So for the record, may I set the following straight: I am from London.

The National Front were ugly and active. My parents hid in the shadows – I wanted to be out in the sunshine, head held high.

3C's Model The 3C's Model is a business model, which offers a strategic look at the factors needed for success. It was developed by business and corporate strategist Kenichi Ohmae. The 3C’s model points out that a strategist should focus on three key factors for success. In the construction of a business strategy, three main players must be taken into account: The CustomerThe CompetitorsThe Corporation Only by integrating these three, a sustained competitive advantage can exist. There are certain needs that arise from the customer end. There is also a new 3 C's model emerging which centers on sustainability. CapabilityConsistencyCultivation The idea behind the new 3 C's model revolves around the concept of shared value to the firm, the environment, and the community. The Customer[edit] Clients are the base of any strategy according to Ohmae. Segmenting by oppermann[edit] The differentiation is done in terms of the different ways that various customers use a product. Segmenting by customer coverage[edit]
