  1. Students of public or personnel management will be challenged by this fast moving case study showing the sequential decisions made in a charged management situation. A recently appointed engineering commissioner in an urban building department is confronted with disconcerting allegations of unethical conduct by one of her supervisors. The supervisor responsible for commercial building inspections is alleged to have enlisted the aid of city employees, on "company time" for construction work on his own home, using city vehicles in the process.

  2. Instructors may use this case to teach operations analysis, and demonstrate the use of "continuous improvement" or "work re-engineering," inclusive decision-making and strategic organizational development. This case is ideal for provoking classroom discussion about the risks associated with different problem solving strategies from the perspective of the chief executive, about work flow systems and identifying moments of key customer contact ("moments of truth").

  3. This case study focuses on decision-making from an applied perspective in a national policy priority area where the issue is salient to the public yet scientific evidence and projections are quite controversial. It simulates policy analysis and examines legislative process through the application of several analytic tools. Tackling climate change threats requires sophisticated policy design, and that design must account for complex scientific modeling and uncertainty about magnitude and timing of negative environmental effects.

  7. The cash payment programs for renewable energy and low-income housing investments that the Department of Treasury (Treasury) enacted in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the Recovery Act or ARRA) were a creative response to the economic downturn of 2008. They served as tools to help create a lifeline for two important industries in order to achieve the policy outcomes of sustaining and creating jobs, ensuring housing for low-income residents, and furthering the United States’ energy goals.

  9. This case focuses on Monty Paradis, a manager charged with overseeing farm worker health and safety, who discovers surprising results in the data he has about a state regulatory program called the Eyes and Falls initiative. This data dispel his previous assumptions, and other results that leave him with more questions than answers. In an effort to rigorously analyze the data on this initiative, he employed regression analysis to determine whether the initiative showed a relative decrease in injuries and costs.
