Cases

I have co-authored a number of cases on leading global companies in the United States and Japan including: Boeing Corporation, RealNetworks, Starbucks Corporation, Harley-Davidson Company, Amazon.com, Steinway & Sons, vCustomer, National Bicycle Industrial Company, Sanyo Manufacturing, and Suntory. I have also developed multimedia cases on Starbucks Corporation and Steinway & Sons.

The Harley-Davidson and Boeing Corporation cases can be bought directly from the Harvard Business School Publications website.
