Case Studies

Using the case studies

The content of each of the five case studies is self-contained on one web page and is divided into sections, following a standard format.

On each case study page, clicking the folder button in the section heading will expand or close that section on screen. You can always return to the Summary and contents by selecting the Return to Summary link at the bottom of each section.
