Like all of the business cases studied during the program, a personal case begins with a question or problem. In consultation with their AMP executive coach, their living group, and AMP faculty, executives explore a range of issues and then settle on the one problem they most want to investigate. This could be a challenge their company is facing such as a strategic or financial choice, or it could be a challenge related to their personal leadership. Ideally, executives will select a challenge for which they have formal authority/ownership, so that they can execute on the plan of action created during the Personal Case process.
As AMP progresses, executives work on their Personal Case in collaboration with their AMP peers, who can provide invaluable perspective and feedback at each stage of the project. The HBS faculty and the executive's personal coach also provide input that helps to refine the action plan. As AMP comes to a close, some participants' personal cases are chosen for presentation and discussion with the larger AMP group.

The first business case, written by Clinton Biddle and published in 1921, was a one-page narrative about a management challenge facing leaders at the General Shoe Company. The case proved to be a very successful teaching tool, and many more cases followed.
