The Ivey Casebook Series is a co-publishing partnership between SAGE Publications and the Richard Ivery School of Business at The University of Western Ontario.

Given that most managers will need to function effectively in an international context, the cases draw from challenges faced by experienced managers in such varied settings as China, France, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Trinidad, Vietnam, and others, in addition to the U.S. and Canada. These cases continue to illustrate basic concepts while expanding students' understanding of economic, political and cultural concerns that must be interwoven into such key areas as process design, quality and supply chain management.
