Last July at IE Business School we held an award ceremony to recognize the learning materials that were considered the best in their categories by a jury. We had the case competition with the categories "Overall Best Case" and "Short Case Study", as well as awarded the most-used learning material at IE and the overall internally and worldwide bestselling learning materials.
For the "Overall Best Case," the winner was Inditex y el Rol Emergente de los Sindicatos en la Globalización: Denuncia o Corresponsabilidad by Professor Joaquin Garralda (which will soon be available in English as well). The case talks about the social sustainability model followed by Inditex, its relationship with unions and some of their agreements, looking at possible challenges in the future for class discussion.
The winner of the category "Short Case Study" was Disruptive Innovation at BBVA by Professor Casimiro Juanes. This short interactive case study focuses on how BBVA reacted to the disruption of its micro-payment business caused by the entrance of large multinationals from outside the banking industry.
The most-used learning material at IE was awarded to A Critical Situation (soon to be available, for more info drop us a message here) by professors Custodia Cabanas and Nicola Gatti. This is a class dynamic supported by the interactive site that allows students to make their decisions individually and to set the priorities afterward in groups. Students face a critical situation and they have to plan on how to solve it.
Last but certainly not least is the overall bestselling learning material awarded to Xstrata and Australian Mining Tax Reform by Professor Daniel Blake. Focusing on Xstrata, the largest foreign mining company operating in Australia, the case charts how the mining industry acted collectively to conduct a wide-ranging and aggressive public and private lobbying campaign against the tax.
