The Multimedia Development team has extensive experience with the case method and deep expertise in the use of pioneering, interactive learning technologies to enhance teaching and learning. The award-winning team has a 30-year track record of successfully delivering reliable, smartly designed multimedia teaching products. The team works closely with faculty to meet pedagogical goals and steward cases from concept and field research to classroom use and distribution through Harvard Business Publishing. 

Since 1995, the team has filmed in hundreds of locations across five continents, partnering with faculty to produce media-rich case studies on companies and organizations including NASA, Chobani, Zappos, IDEO, Bridgewater Associates, Coca Cola, Siemens, Jazz at Lincoln Center, lululemon, Eataly, Taj Hotels, Kodak, Havas, and Burt’s Bees.  

The  Multimedia Development  team is  deeply thoughtful about the student journey, and the cases are beautiful. Students, executives, and my colleagues from other schools are always impressed. The cases engage students in a different way. Classes are more fun. The impact is powerful.

It is inspiring to experience your craft. Your creativity, attention to detail, and ability to mix storytelling with deep learning are inspiring. It always makes me feel fortunate to be at HBS to see how you take raw ideas and interviews and fashion them into a case.
