A Case Study on Strategic Management

By William James

Wesley UMC was featured in a 2007 case study published in Dr. Fred David’s best-selling textbook, Strategic Management—Concepts & Cases, 12th Edition.  The case focuses on important strategic planning issues both specific to Wesley and generally affecting any small church that strives to remain a relevant, vibrant, and central to its surrounding community.

For students: Wesley does not routinely provide detailed financial updates to the information provided in the case study.  The SC Conference of the United Methodist Church does, however, publish financial and other statistical data for Wesley and all other United Methodist Churches in South Carolina.

You can access this great wealth of information by following the link below: http://www.umcsc.org/data/stats2007.php

The GCFA # for Wesley is 280325.   Remember, you can also search within the Hartsville Conference for other area UMC’s.   For other information, please feel free to contact the case author at wc.james@icloud.com.
