What is Case Materials?

Case material means "business case" here.  Business cases are description of specific entities' business strategy, performance, current status and historical background etc. to be able to understand the fundamentals of running business.  Development of business cases involves information gathering, hearings and interviews at companies, to comprehensively gather facts and backgrounds, so the workload is quite heavy.
