  • STEP1

    Individual preparation: Read and comprehend the case and formulate a hypothesis

    The casebook will be distributed electronically to students two weeks before the class. Read the cases, considering the success factors of the company and the reasons for the struggle. By referring to the textbooks and recommended books presented by the faculty members, complete your own thoughts (hypothesis) regarding the assignments, as a preliminary task in advance of the lecture.

  • STEP2

    Group discussions: Repeat discussions and gather opinions

    Start with a group session. A small number of participants, designated in advance, gather in a group room to exchange opinions on issues and share their thoughts. By expressing various opinions under the group leader, you can organize your thoughts and deepen your understanding of the case.

  • STEP3

    General discussion: Pursuing the best management decisions in class

    Discussions will be held through voting and raising hands, under facilitation by faculty, in answer to questions such as "this company's project seems likely to fail, but is it okay to proceed as it is? Do you agree / disagree?". By comparing and colliding opinions from various perspectives, a deeper consideration will develop. The ultimate goal of the case method is not to draw any single conclusion in the class, consider how you may act in the future should you encounter a situation like the one depicted in the case.
