One of INGSA’s core activities is to assist with the development or strengthening of advisory systems through capacity-building workshops.

We often tend to use a case-based learning approach in our workshops. These are a mix of actual historic cases and fictional cases.

We are in the process of building our case study library and welcome your ideas and support in developing new cases. Please send your submissions to info@ingsa.org

Below are examples of INGSA case studies:
