The K.C. Confectionery Case
Teaching case studies are a great way to implement active learning tactics. Writers describe case studies as complex examples, giving insight into the context of a problem and illustrating the main point. It provides student-centred activities based on topics that demonstrate theoretical concepts in an applied setting. This paper is concerned with exploring and promoting the teaching of new product development (NPD) and innovation using case studies in one of the universities in Trinidad and Tobago (T&T). The aim of this paper is to create the first local teaching case study, accompanied by an instructor's manual. The outcome is a six-page case study, validated by undergraduate and postgraduate students, which examined the NPD and innovation processes at K. C. Confectionery Limited (KCC), a T&T based food and beverage manufacturing company.
