ANZSOG case studies put you in the room with the decision-makers facing real public sector dilemmas.
The Case Library is an internationally acclaimed resource centre for the promotion of interactive teaching.
* Available free to alumni, academics & staff from member governments and universities.
One of the strengths of the ANZSOG Case Library is the wide range of public sector case studies from all levels of government across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
We are always looking for interesting new cases to stimulate discussion about recent or current events in the public sector. Topic areas include leadership, policy development, regulation, budgeting, intergovernmental relations, service delivery management, strategic communication and ethics.
Our case library was designed as a resource for instructors using the interactive approach known as ‘case teaching’, which focuses on people as decision-makers and enables students to ‘stand in the shoes’ of the manager whose circumstances or dilemma are described in the case, giving practical shape and illustration to concepts.
The best cases:
If you have identified a subject of interest, please get in touch with us to discuss how we can develop it.
Our cases may be written by our program writers, an academic in one of our partner institutions or a contract writer, supervised by an academic in a partner institution.
We are committed to developing expertise in case teaching and case writing and our Case Program team can advise those without previous experience.
ANZSOG may agree to support the development and writing of new cases with the amount available varying between A$3000 and A$5000, depending on the length and complexity of, and identified need for, the proposed case. Preference is given to cases that fill teaching needs in ANZSOG programs or gaps in our case library collection.
Government agencies may commission ANZSOG to produce a case, however commissions are only accepted where ANZSOG’s teaching objectives and the organisation’s needs are compatible. Agencies wishing to fund a case should complete the
Case Proposal Form
or contact the ANZSOG Case Program director to discuss their needs.
Fill in the
Case Proposal Form
, providing an outline the project, including a brief description of the case, the teaching outcomes expected, the research and development methodologies, the proposed completion date, itemisation of any proposed budget, and brief resumes of the academic supervisor and case writer.
Editorial representatives of the ANZSOG Case Program will consider your application. They will either: accept your application; propose variations; reject your application; or refer it a full editorial committee of the ANZSOG Case Program for further review.
Depending on the nature of the case, our cases usually pass through the following stages:
Access to the case library is free to our government and university partners and available to other interested parties for an annual fee.
