Development of research approaches to provide Case Studies for evidence-based learning

The overall objective of the project was to contribute towards building a capable state, responsive to the needs of all its citizens and the promotion of national interest, accountability and transparency in service delivery, and utilising public resources in an effective and efficient way.
The specific objectives of the project were the following:
  • Develop fifteen (15) researched case studies (2 from Ghana and 13 from South Africa) utilising the case method for public service teaching and learning.
  • Work with at least five (5) assigned higher education institutions (HEI) in South Africa to assist and develop their capacity to develop and use the case study method for public service teaching and learning.
  • Dissemination of the case studies via at least ten (15) sector workshops at the NSG
  • Preparation of the materials as publications for journals / manual and book chapters so that the NSG can take these forward.
