Case Info

Case Rules

  • You should discuss neither the case nor the case presentations with other teams, students not participating in the competition, or other faculty members during competition week until the judges have completed their scoring and winners have been announced. Doing so will be considered a violation of the Honor Code.
  • Teams should not meet for more than 1 hour with their assigned mentor.
  • Other than meeting with the mentors, participants may not talk to faculty or staff until the judging is completed. Participants are welcome to discuss the case with others outside of their university and teams are strongly encouraged to use the library, internet, course notes/texts, etc.
  • Teams are welcome to submit questions about the case by emailing the case contact (lcs@rti.org).  All team captains will receive a copy of any responses from the case planning team to ensure that the teams have similar knowledge about the clarification.  If the question is deemed inappropriate, the planning team will notify you that an answer will not be given.

Case Presentation Guidelines

  • To ensure that all teams have equal amounts of presentation time, each team’s final presentation will be collected an hour before presentations begin on the day of the competition. Each team must turn in their thumb drives with the saved final presentation 30 minutes before presentations begin.  No changes to your presentation will be allowed after that time.
  • Presentations will be loaded onto the computer and projection screen for you by a case competition planning team member.
  • Format: Presentations should be in Microsoft PowerPoint.  Please make sure that slide number are on the slides since this will help judges better facilitate the Q&A process.  You may want to put extra slides after your last slide to answer anticipated questions. YOU ARE PROHIBITED FROM INCLUDING ANY UNIVERSITY AFFILIATION ON YOUR SLIDES!
  • Presenters: As many or as few team members can participate in the presentation as the team sees fit.  All team members should stand in the front of the room during the presentation and during the Q&A session at the end of the presentation.
  • Presentation Time: Each team will have a total of 20 minutes, with 12 minutes allotted to the presentation and 8 minutes allotted to Q&A with the judges. Timing will be strictly adhered to and controlled by a referee. You will be given 5 and 2 minutes warnings during the presentation and a 2 minute warning during the Q&A. Leftover time from the presentation may be used for Q&A from the judges. Teams may not view other teams’ presentations until they have delivered their own presentation.

REMINDER: You should discuss neither the case nor the case presentations with other teams, students not participating in the competition, or other faculty members during competition week until the judges have completed their scoring and winners have been announced. Doing so will be considered a violation of the Honor Code.
