Family firms case study compilation
Ulysses partners have been working on compiling quality case studies for the competition. Would you like to get a peek into the process? Let’s see what we have been doing!
Step 1: Meetings with Family Firms and Establishment of Regional AlliancesIn the initial phases, we reached out to local family firms in mail, and we established alliances with them to partner up for case study writing.
Step 2: Signing agreements and holding workshops with Family FirmsAs a crucial step, we signed Memorandum of Understandings with local Family Firms to establish a formal connection between the Ulysses Contest and them, while organizing workshops with the firms.
Step 3: Collecting dataFamily Firms chosen from the pool of Regional Alliances were interviewed. These interviews constituted the basis for the case studies.
Step 4: Forming case studiesBased on the interviews, case studies were formed. These were initial formations, which needed some more validation from the family firms, so that they read and agree with all the content presented from a different angle and viewpoint than theirs.
Step 5: Validating case studiesFamily firms got the chance to re-read the case studies that were created based on the interviews with their representatives. Partners got the chance to read and evaluate each others' cases, too. This gave them the chance to clarify the issues in case it was needed.
Step 6: Finalizing case studies for the competitionAfter the previous step, case studies received their final format, brand new and shiny for the Ulysses Contest!
I hope you understand, but we cannot share all of them, as the contest case studies will only be revealed for the contestants at the time of the competition. So, if you are interested in all of them, sign up for the contest! In the meantime, you can look at a sample case study right here. Sneak peek, just for You!
See? All those steps leading to the finalization of case studies that would constitute the basis of the Ulysses Contest! Are you as excited as we are about the contest?
