Retail Case Overview
The Retail case challenges students to think creatively and strategically in a time constrained situation. As a judge in this event, your role is to assume the position of an individual in upper management in the company identified in the case and evaluate how effectively each team presents their solution to the problem presented in the case.
The Case Scenario
The students will know nothing about case before they enter the prep room. They will have 30 minutes to familiarize themselves with the case and develop a presentation designed to alleviate or solve the problem. Given that this is such a limited time frame, the scenario will not be complicated and it is expected that the presentation will be straightforward.
Within the scenario of the case, it will be assumed that the student consulting team has not yet met you, but has received a communication outlining your situation.
