Module 6 Briefing Sheet


"Speed Ventures" Case Simulation

Vicki Medvec, the Faculty for this session, has provided the following important instructions with respect to the Case Simulation:

  • Do not discuss the Case Simulation or the role that you have been assigned with anyone prior to the session (including at your cohort meeting).
  • Read the Case Simulation in the days prior to the session so that it is very fresh in your mind when you come to the session.
  • Read and consider the Case Simulation from the perspective of your assigned role -- either Pat James,  Jessie Edwards or Robin Burns.
  • Be prepared to engage in your role during the decision-making exercise in the upcoming session.


  • Per the instructions above, read the "Speed Ventures" Case Simulation.
  • Think about your (and your legal department’s) decision-making experience in your Company/Organization. What decision-making challenges have you encountered?
  • Record (write) down some of those decision-making challenges.
