报告主题：examination of a subject of study (the case), as well as its related contextual conditions. Case study is not incomprehensible in terms of research method, but it receives relatively low publication rates than quantitative analysis. However, a larger percentage of world leading articles are exploratory in nature, and especially in form of case study. Although many basics of case study are known to all researches, but there are still many techniques that need further drill and explanation. The renowned professor in PM area, Prof. Ralf Müller will talk to you face to face not by lecturing with structured content, but innovatively doing an Q&A session on how to do case study, especially in face of publications. Please be prepared with examples, questions and enthusiasm. All questions are welcome.
