Katastasi:

Katástasi is a Greek word meaning ‘situation’. In the world of business , we come across situations that present us with myriad variety of dilemmas, issues and problems. Decision-making under various constraints and limitations is the prime challenge for a manager or entrepreneur. A description of such critical business or related situations in the form of gripping story is a ‘Management Case.’ Such cases, when used as a learning tool, bring out the personality of the student and build decision making and leadership skills.
