Scholarship and Professional Work - Business

This case would be considered a critical incident, as it focuses on one primary issue – the valuation of a private equity investment in the underlying business.

The ten case studies reveal that communication is a necessity, drastically improving the success of a merger ...

It is one reflection of engagement, signalling the importance of mutual commitment in the relationship. It is one forum where learning, informal and formal, can take place.

The issue people wanted to know more about was how could we better connect with one another around an area of mutual interest? This companion document in the LLEAP ...
