The Asian IT Case Series (AITCS) is a web-based publication of teaching cases centered around IT management and based on rigorous research conducted with real Asian firms and government agencies.

The dual mission of this series is to promote the best practices of Asian IT management and to provide teaching and learning materials free-of-charge to educators, students and practitioners around the world, particularly to Asian institutions with limited teaching resources.

To meet this mission, AITCS has the following objectives:

  • To promote the use of Asian IT management case studies in teaching and practice
  • To provide free-of-charge Asian IT management teaching materials to educational institutions worldwide
  • To act as a one-stop portal for case learning, teaching, writing and research

Our cases are crafted to enhance the learning experience for students and practitioners of IT management with rich and relevant domain knowledge from the Asian perspective. Our catalog spans a wide spectrum of IT management themes, including IT-Enabled Organizational Transformation, Enterprise Systems, and E-Government. For educators, each case is accompanied by instructional materials such as comprehensive teaching notes and presentations to enrich the learning environment.

To use our cases, simply register with us. Registered users enjoy free access to our entire case catalog, while verified educators enjoy further access to the instructional materials for each case. Registration is free and only takes a minute!

AITCS is established with the support of the faculty members of the Department of Information Systems and the School of Computing at the National University of Singapore.
