The NACRA Annual Conference is a unique opportunity to engage with other leading case researchers in a small-group format, to receive detailed and constructive feedback about your case, and to participate in presentations from experienced case researchers and educators. Our distinctive roundtable track design provides an excellent professional opportunity to enhance your abilities to develop higher quality participant-centered and discussion-based cases and proceed with publication in numerous refereed journals (such as NACRA’s Case Research Journal), or in special issues or textbooks by various case publishers and distributors. In addition, the Annual Conference includes a collaborative Start-Up Case Workshop, Pedagogy Track, and ‘New Views’ topic sessions. For more information on all tracks, sessions, and submission guidelines, please see https://nacra.net/conference/conference-tracks/.
2023 NACRA Conference Plenary
“Case Method Today: Impact on Theory Building, Students’ Learning, and Industry/Community Engagement – Insights from INSEAD Blue Ocean Strategy Institute”
Presented by Oh Young Koo, Institute Executive Fellow, INSEAD Blue Ocean Strategy Institute.
Join us to hear about the impact of case research in complementing the renowned blue ocean strategy theory by professors W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne, about the impact of cases on students’ learning, and how cases help build connections between academia and industry as well as engage with local communities. Moreover, as the case method evolves to include breakthrough new formats, we will hear about the Blue Ocean Hackathon as a newly emerged experiential learning method and a new approach to exploring cases with students. Please read NACRA 2023 Keynote Address announcement for details about this exciting plenary.
Roundtable Tracks: Most cases target typical business school courses and topics, such as finance, strategy, marketing, operations, governance, entrepreneurship, and organizational behavior. Cases that examine other contexts are also welcome if they facilitate participant-centered and discussion-based learning. Roundtable tracks will also be hosted for cases written in several languages. Undisguised decision-focused cases based on primary sources (interviews, field visits) are highly preferred. Although cases may be disguised, they must be based on real events and real people in real organizations. Fictional cases are not appropriate for this conference. Cases submitted to the conference may have been previously taught but must not have been previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere (journals, books, online) before the conference. A submission to the conference includes a case study (from 3 up to 15 pages) and associated comprehensive instructor manual. In submitting your case, you are committing to having at least one author attend the NACRA conference and participating in case roundtables during the mornings of both October 6 and October 7. Therefore, authors who submit multiple cases to different tracks must have co-authors who will also attend the conference.
Start-Up Case Workshop: Submit a 2-page proposal for less-developed cases to be discussed on the afternoon of October 5. The workshop is appropriate for newer case authors wishing to learn how to develop effective teaching cases and instructor’s manuals, as well as experienced authors looking for advice on a new case approach.
Pedagogy Track: Submit an article (from 3 up to 30 pages) exploring any aspects of learning and researching with cases to discuss opinions, research intentions, and articles in case research, case writing, and case teaching. Pedagogy track will be hosted on the afternoon of October 5, in parallel with the Start-Up Case Workshop.
New Views (Panels, Workshops, and Symposia): these topic sessions will be hosted on the afternoon of October 6. We welcome 2-page proposals for ‘New Views’ sessions that will examine relevant, interesting, and novel case research or case teaching topics to be presented at the conference. Previous sessions have included Case Research for Theory Building and Testing, Interdisciplinary Cases, Live Case Projects, and Case Journal Rankings.
