The IPD examination system provides a unique route into professional personnel practice. The "Management Studies" series has been designed for IPD students. Management Studies I provides practical introductory texts ideally suited to students on the Professional Management Foundation Programme while Management Studies 2 covers the core subject areas of the IPD Stage 2 syllabus. All these texts will prove equally useful for practising managers who wish to enhance their understanding of contemporary management techniques and methods. Designed to accompany "Case Studies in Personnel", this manual provides guidance on the background, context and delivery of the case studies, showing how each case can be used and how it relates to the IPM Professional Educational Scheme. It gives suggestions for further discussion and, where appropriate, the actual outcome of the real-life case studies is given.
