The WBS Case Centre
The WBS case centre was established in the late 1990s for the purpose of writing cases that reflect the real-world complexities of doing business in the South African and African context. Today the WBS case centre has a team of case writers who work with academics to produce timely, relevant cases on current challenges facing private and public sector organisations operating in South Africa and Africa. The case centre has developed more than 200 cases on companies as diverse as Anglogold, Nando’s, Harley Davisdon®, Massmart, and Capitec Bank. The cases cover all areas of business and management, including strategy, organisational design and development, entrepreneurship, internationalisation, operations management, and human resources.
