(11 pages of text)
AWARD WINNING CASE - This case won the Euro-Mediterranean Managerial Practices and Issues, 2013 European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) Case Writing Competition. The case describes an innovative business model offering wine and a French cultural experience to North Americans. Students are given an opportunity to learn about the challenges of reviving a 1,000-year-old chateau, farmhouse, and vineyard while building a viable wine export and travel experience business. The case refers to a 15-minute online video that includes an interview with the entrepreneur, pictures of the Montlaur estate, and excerpts about Guédelon Castle, a medieval construction project.
Students are tasked with identifying the company’s innovations, determining the problems and type of innovation strategy of the firm’s micro lease program, assessing the entrepreneur, and completing a SWOT analysis of the venture. This case is primarily written to be used in a course on innovation management; however it is also appropriate for courses on strategy, international management behavior, and entrepreneurship. It can be used at either the undergraduate or graduate level.
