The Case Study Toolbook - Partnership case studies as a tool for change

The Case Study Toolbook aims to provide insights into the process of successful cross-sector partnering, create better case study collection and dissemination methods and deepen understanding of how case studies may be used more effectively as tools for change.

The starting point for the toolbook was to address the apparent discrepancy between the idea of case studies as valuable sources of information and inspiration and the reality that most case studies are either too academic or too superficial to add real value.

The book is designed to help individuals to create their own case studies more successfully and is aimed at partnership practitioners worldwide, irrespective of their sector or their partnering role(s) or whether they are working on partnerships at an operational or a strategic level. Such individuals may be ‘internal’ or ‘external’ to the partnership being studied.
