PR Case Studies, As Though You Were There

James L. Horton, a communications veteran, has a plainly wrapped website, "Online Public Relations Thoughts," on which he devotes considerable effort to be of assistance/inspiration to PR colleagues. His latest contribution, posted this month, is a series of 19 "case studies," fictional PR set pieces inspired by Jim's experience in contexts such as "Crisis," "Breach of faith," "CEO," "General Counsel" and "Reluctant Client."

You download the two or three page cases as PDFs, (some may be longer, we haven't checked them all), read through them, imagine yourself in the circumstances described and answer for yourself, or in groups, the questions at the end of each case. Sure you might find something like this in PR texts, but here it is, right out there on the Web for ready collegial access. Thanks, Jim, for sharing your experience in this manner!
