Theory Resources

One important component of preparing for case competitions is the ability to apply theory to your case analysis. For example, you may be assigned a case about brining a new product to market. You could discuss the product development lifecycle as part of your analysis of the case.

The Value Based Management site below includes a synopsis of many common business and management theories that can be used as a starting point when doing a case analysis.
