Chung and Dasgupta: Information for Casey Clark Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

These set of cases examines the general and organization-specific human capital roles in performance evaluation, feedback, promotion, and compensation decisions. A major law agency has to decide that whether to accept an external partnership proposal to one of its leading litigators, however the litigator is ineligible for partnership as dictated by the current regulations through which the agency chooses partners. Although, the other non-litigator at the agency has performed just as well as the star litigator but her capabilities and roles are specific to the firm and does not have a significant value in the market, which did not lead to any partnership offer. The case should be through a role play study in which one of the students plays the role of a formally-assigned mentor from the partnership group of law firm, while the other student plays the role of the non-litigator. It would be effective to utilize the general information case “The Promotion Process at Chung and Dasgupta, LLP,” 914-044, while teaching through role play and the roles: “Chung and Dasgupta: Information for Jordan Ramirez,” 914-046, and “Chung and Dasgupta: Information for Casey Clark,” 914-047. With the help of conventional techniques of case teaching, it can also be taught, without any role play through the help of general information case “The Promotion Process at Chung and Dasgupta, LLP” (914-044) and “Chung and Dasgupta: Supplemental Information on Jordan Ramirez and Casey Clark” (914-045). The cases traces the background to examine the challenges and issues around organization-specific human capital, and could also be useful in subjective performance assessment,  effective techniques while providing feedback to employee, and careers for future in a professional service organization.
