This event, to be held on the evening of May 9th, will be our first workshop for the competition. In this workshop, Pam Schilling - a highly experienced consultant turned coach - will discuss some details and best practices for approaching case problems as a team. From a competitive strategy course that she has taught, this case is a fun problem for a rather interesting coffee shop in Wyoming. (More details during the workshop!) Prior to the workshop, Pam will send out a brief case description (about 5 pages) to prepare for the class. Then students will meet in class, have a workshop format lecture, followed by breaking into teams, having a small group discussion and then everyone will present their findings. The entire workshop will take about 2 hours, and should be a great way to experience how to take a client's problem from start to finish. You will work in teams, learn how to gather data and draw interesting conclusions. Please check out this preparatory reading: "A Guide to Case Analysis", and "Cracking a Case: Mystic Monk Coffee".
