Insights from Second Webinar: Strategic Lenses for cracking the case

By our second webinar, we have had over 180 participants, participating from 16+ districts. The deadline for registration is set for November 5th. After Seedlings Nepal assigns you with a case, you need to find your way towards finding your answer. That will set the guiding path you provide for the organization you’re working on. 


Our Mentor for the Webinar

Our mentor for the webinar was Mr. Ugum Khadka. He is an educational designer and faculty of marketing and entrepreneurship at King’s College, Nepal. Mr. Udgam also looks after and facilitates the Demola Program in Nepal. Besides that, at empowerment academy, a wing of King’s College, he is learning designer. He designs workshops and programs for Teachers' development within and beyond King’s College. 

Cracking a Case

From the perspective of our mentor, to crack a business case, you need to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur and see it from a perspective to solve the issue. Cracking a case is finding a way to the outcome. What you need to understand about this process is that there’s never only one way you can find it, there can be multiple angles or perspectives. For instance, you can look at a case from a marketing perspective, or maybe human resource or from a financial angle, or even can mix up with this perspective. 

Tips to Crack:


- Read

While working on a case, there are more options, complexity paths, or that you can take to resolve a case. Also, it is important to understand the case from the perspective of the organization as well. So, go through the case multiple times until you are able to grab the information. 

 

- Research

Research to find as much information as you can. The analysis of the case becomes richer if there’s enough data and evidence to support your arguments. Research also lets you have knowledge of multiple languages and not just from surface level. 


- Interact with the stakeholders

While you are researching your case, your secondary data lets you know who the stakeholders of particular businesses are. These stakeholders have been in the industry and have witnessed the difficulties and challenges and opportunities in the industry. That person is going to give you more real insight. 

 

- Take notes to connect the dots

Once you start gathering information, take notes. Try to go through these notes and you might see your notes might start connecting towards the end. 

 

- Funnel Areas

As discussed earlier, a business has various sectors, for instance, finance, marketing, production, and so on. These are the wider areas to explore. But when you funnel these areas to limited areas.

This is going to make the outcome of your analysis more concrete, specific, and convincing. 

 

Moreover, the webinar also included tips about the do’s and don’ts of the case study. To know
