Managing Organizations and People is a collection of nine case modules. Each module contains five cases on a particular topic in management, such as leadership. There are 57 cases for courses in management, organizational behavior, and human resource management. Each five case modular covers a key management topic such as strategy, organizational design, managing diversity. Instructors can select as many or as few case modules as they want, include other exercises, and their own material to build a supplement tailored fit to their course. These cases were carefully selected for their relevance and student interest, covering a broad range of topics and scenarios by experienced management instructors, Paul Buller and Randall Schuler. All cases have been class tested and case notes are available for all.
