In this paper the instructional method, case‐based modeling, is presented and examined in practice. The model is built upon concepts and theories of constructivism and experiential learning. It represents an arrangement of instructional tasks and as the tasks are completed in an ordered sequence they help individuals learn how to shape and practice general and routine management skills. Case situations used with team research, study and practice provide the bases for skill identification and continuous improvement. The case‐based modeling approach may be adapted to many different topics or business disciplines in which decision situations can be embedded in case material. The instructional approach and a brief study of its influences are demonstrated in this paper.
