Case studies support leaders to take up a reflective, inquiring and open attitude toward their own leadership practices. A specially developed form of case study is used in the MBA programme “Communication and Leadership” at the Danube University Krems.
The research case study is developed for investigating unclear and critical phenomena and is used as a vehicle for translating leadership phenomena into comprehensible language.
The leaders work on their own real life situations in the form of case studies, applying practical and theoretical perspectives. They each tell their story with its highs and lows and identify organisational learning patterns. Telling these core stories becomes an effective opportunity to create an appropriate distance and new mindsets, resulting in new opportunities to understand and act as a leader and organisation.
