A trio of Okanagan College professors has proven its dominance when it comes to case research and writing.

Business professors Dr. Kyleen Myrah, Kerry Rempel and Stacey Fenwick last month captured bronze at the North American Case Conference, which was held virtually on Oct. 14 to 16.

It marked the second straight year that Okanagan College hit the podium at the event, as Dr. Myrah and Rempel won gold in 2020. This year there were 200 North American Case Research Association members taking part from more than 20 countries, and 120 cases were submitted.

“We’re competing against major powerhouse institutions where people are funded to do research,” Rempel said in a press release. “To be recognized as one of the top in the world in case research and writing, it’s an amazing feeling.”

Myrah, Rempel and Fenwick’s case explored EnactusOC, a student-run organization at Okanagan College that uses entrepreneurial activities to make a positive impact in the community. The case explored motivational theories and group dynamics during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our case was situated around how EnactusOC transitioned through a pandemic,” Rempel said. “In particular, how a leader continues to motivate and move a team through these times, especially a team over which they have no authority or responsibility.”
