For each round of competition, each team will prepare and present the same case before a panel of three to four judges. All matchups are determined through prior random draw.
The presentations must be in English. Overhead acetates, a whiteboard/blackboard, and cue cards are allowed for the presentation. A large number of acetates will be provided in the breakout room. They may not be prepared before the relevant case has been distributed.
Each team will have a strictly enforced maximum of 20 minutes to make its case presentation, followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer session. All team members are required to participate at least once in the presentation.
