The cases will be suitable for all management courses, both in-company and college based, but will be particularly useful for the chartered Institute of Building membership I and II examinations. The cases have been tried out on students and found to be effective. The author has been a lecturer and management consultant for 24 years. He has his own consultancy business and is also a Director in PES Associates – Management Consultants. The case work is principally taken from his own case Book.
It is important to have a tutors manual as all the information need not and possibly should not be given to the student. Additional information which is likely to be called for is the tutors manual. There is, however, still scope for the tutor to use his own imagination.
People learn better when doing and the case method is one of the best ways to do this. The tutor becomes a course manager and not a talking machine. He will learn as well as the students.
Geographical names may be changed to suit the location the case is being operated. Local Conditions should be considered.
