Active learning exercises promote critical thinking and decision making skills as well as a thorough understanding of strategic management concepts. The dominant pedagogy for teaching strategic management has been business cases. This book widens the portfolio by providing experiential exercises that can be used in a class or training session to demonstrate the application of key theories and frameworks in the field of designing and implementing strategy. Each session makes a complete turn through the active learning cycle of thought, action, feedback and assessment. An accompanying detailed instructor’s manual helps the conduct of the exercise to maximize the learning benefits.
