The “Volkswagen über alles” Teaching Case is Out

After months of patient research, the teaching case “Volkswagen über alles” on the Dieselgate scandal, developed by the Baillet Latour Chair on Error Management at Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management is now available. The clearing house The Case Centre has registered it with the 318-0046-1 and you may find it here with its teaching note.

In 3 parts, the case recounts how the whole affair unfolded over almost 10 years. It is written in the perspective of top executives, Chairman Ferdinand Piëch and CEO Martin Winterkorn. It offers a perspective on strategic choices, errors at various levels of Volkswagen, and how those errors were managed.

We encourage teachers to use this as a material for Masters and MBA classes, as well as executive education programs especially for senior managers from industrial sectors.
