Case studies and the case study method are the most prevalent pedagogical technique across all professional studies be it law, public and business administration, medicine, and others. The case study method is used in public policy and administration principally to develop, refine, and sharpen a student’s analytical, assessment, and diagnostic skill sets and decision-making abilities to come to a correct judgement based on the relevant and factual evidence as applied to the most pertinent authorities and accepted principles and practice. This talk will focus and draw upon Professor Simeon’s ongoing work for the second edition of his case book and instructor’s manual, Case Studies in Public Management and Administration, http://www.captus.com/.
