Before we begin with the webinar details, let’s brainstorm the idea of a Business Case Study. Why experiences of others matter? Or Why do we need to learn from others or why is it that we need to learn from the experiences?
So, learning from others is actually one way of learning; from textbooks, parents, teachers, and so on. These learnings boil down to what experiences have you gained? Experiences matter because you do not know what you will learn or face until someone who’s already lived it shares them with you. “Learn from the mistakes of others, because you cannot afford to make them all on your own”. –Chanakya
Therefore, experiences teach you ways to not make a mistake. Why is it important that you realize this is because a case study is something you need to learn from what others have gone through, experienced, and provide insights? It gives you a path to follow and not make the same mistake.

What is Business Case?
Let’s, for instance, take a business case as a story where the protagonist begins his journey, did certain things in that journey, and now it has some twists and turns. The protagonist has to make some decisions that decide the journey ahead. This is the point where we learn from past experiences.
In a business case, there will be a story and a storyline, but you have to look at what is behind it or beyond it. You need to figure out what is the thing you are missing and make it complete. When studying the business case, you need to look further and not what’s at the surficial level. In order to develop analytical skills, you need to get to the core of the study.

Cracking a Business Case
Think Business Case as a process of learning. For instance, what will you do after you earn some amount? The concept for utilizing the money is given to you, either you invest it or spend it. Now, the decision has to be yours. Cracking a Business Case is similar; you apply your knowledge to make certain decisions arranging the information and facts in order. In the end, you need to reach a short, precise, and specific solution.
