Future-ish Case Studies

Welcome to the Future-ish Case Studies collection.

One of the most valuable ways to explore the management successes and failures of companies, universities, nonprofits, and agencies is by reading and analyzing case studies. Case studies are used extensively in higher education, particularly in MBA and policy study programs and in the business world. Case studies are valuable for students and faculty as tools to learn about and apply newly learned analysis and critical thinking skills. They are valuable to established professionals as they help keep business and other professionals’ skills and knowledge fresh. In the fashion world, designers, models, photographers, stylists, and hair & makeup artists will often coordinate “testing” opportunities to keep their skills, and portfolios, fresh. Analyzing case studies can do the same for students and professionals.

New case studies, authored by students and subject matter experts, are added regularly.
