A team of 6 Thunderbird Students won first place in the SW Regional HR Games Case Competition on Saturday, March 31.  Helen Wu, Sharon Liu, Kyle Larsen, Lauren Sanne, Swecha Bhavana, and Rula Andriessen were given four hours to complete a case analysis, prepare a paper, and create and practice their presentation.  After the team’s first round in front of the judges, they spent the afternoon clarifying their arguments and putting in additional practice time.  It paid off when the competitors made it to the final round and presented to the entire conference audience.  The team won $3,000 and free admission to the Society of Human Resource Management 2012 National Conference in Atlanta.  The AZ SHRM Chapter, and the Thunderbird SHRM Chapter, under the leadership of John Briscoe, sponsored the team and supported them in their journey to victory.
