Case Study Template

IAP2 Australasia is pleased to share with you the IAP2 Case Study Template.  This has been developed as a priority item under the Research Plan developed by the IAP2 Australasia Research Working Group. The purpose of the template, which provides a framework as to the “what, who, where, when, why and how” of a single engagement program, process or project, is to provide:

  • IAP2 members with a structure to produce factual engagement case studies, and access a new resource to use for benchmarking and research;
  • IAP2 Core Value Awards applicants and judges with a resource to inform the development of, and evaluate future award applications;
  • IAP2 Trainers with a resource to include in IAP2 training materials to support learning outcomes;
  • IAP2 Conference presenters with a framework for presenting case studies; and
  • Assist IAP2 Australasia through advocacy, benchmarking and research initiatives.

It is now your turn to showcase all the good work you do! We invite members to submit case studies to IAP2 Australasia via info@iap2.org.au. Approved case studies will be housed in a central repository available for members to access.

The subject of a case study should be confined to a single engagement program, process or project; be contemporary and completed within the past three years.

Where an engagement program is large-scale with multiple engagement phases and/or extended engagement timeframes, it may be viewed and written up as “components” of an overarching “parent” case. Any case can have multiple components, but can only be labelled as a component of a single case. Each single case study must demonstrate significant outcomes. Entering components separately from their parent initiatives allows for the documentation of more detailed information.

Your case studies will become valuable resources for engagement professionals to support future engagement and research projects, and decision-making.  Additionally, they will become important assets in advocating for engagement and influencing key decision-makers to ensure that authentic engagement remains an integral component of all projects and processes.

We can’t wait to see your case studies.
