A well-written teaching case resembles a detective story or investigative journalism that grabs the reader and compels him or her to keep reading, and dig into a situation to discover what is really going on. In this way, cases are art. But cases are also science: they are based on real-life situations, are logically structured, and serve a clear pedagogical purpose. A case writer must know what he or she wants students to take away from a case, and reverse engineer the data into a proper case study. To write a good case is not just to tell a story about an organization, but to explore what lies behind a decision. It is this focused exploration and discovery that makes case writing science.
