The Case Method is a teaching method that uses decision-forcing cases to enable attendants to discuss and refine solutions to a problem. The Case Method is known to be effective in cultivating one’s abilities of decision-making in practical contexts.

We will introduce the application of the Case Method to human resource development in various fields such as local governments, regional development, and healthcare.

In our session, we will discuss the mechanism of the case method, how it leads to deeper understanding of problems and its frameworks, and develops one’s ability to deal with them.
