Product Type material for open learning
The Case History is a detailed account of the facts affecting the development or condition of a person or group under “treatment”, training or study.
A form of qualitative descriptive research, the case study typically examines the interplay of all variables in order to provide as complete understanding of an event or situation as possible.
The advantages of a case study are they can provide a wealth detail, give credibility to situation and problems, pointing out risks and opportunities, and most important, provide an outcome.
Case Histories show, with a concrete and not theoretical approach, the results obtain after a particular process.
Many Case Histories are based on the description of situations of success, as a tool of benchmarking; a way to share with others a “correct” how to path for “what to do in case of….”
But, Case Histories do not necessarily had to refer to “success”. They can also describe negative situation, outline a process that could teach “what not to do in case of ”.
Case History can be analysed in terms of “internal” or “external” environment, becoming an important tool for understanding and improvement, a problem solving and/or benchmarking instruments.
Description Each partner participate to the two compulsory rounds of Case Histories creation, thus representing a learning opportunity and the basis for the further development of the validation emthodology.
