Karim Lakhani and Andrew Mcafee have written a Harvard Business School Case on Wikipedia. Unlike normal Harvard case, it’s available free online. (But you can’t edit it!)

    Thank you for pointing this out. Such case studies for teaching higher order analytical thinking skills in business are sorely lacking in many countries not endowed with a lot of wealth (developing countries) that could benefit from them for exactly this reason.

    I think it is time for some academic associations to explore the idea of developing and updating some set of cases using wikis and allowing different faculty members to be part of a peer-group that makes sure that a core set of cases in different disciplines are as current as possible, We could even invite companies to contribute in the form of podcasts, presentations and videocasts. Is it not ironic that the case on wikipedia cannot be edited?
