ISM San Diego Chapter Spring Highlights

Inaugural Case Competition 2014

On Friday, March 21st, ISM San Diego sponsored its’ inaugural student case competition. Undergraduate student teams from Cal State University, San Marcos, San Diego State University and the University of San Diego participated. The competition, co-sponsored by San Diego Gas & Electric and took place in the Energy Innovation Center in Clairemont Mesa. Students arrived at the Center at 8:30 a.m. and were given the case. They had no prior preparation and only had the full day on Friday to come up with solutions. Solutions were presented in a PowerPoint presentation from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. Each team at 20 minutes of total stage time, 10 minute presentation with 10 minutes Q&A by the judges. The case was developed by the University of Michigan regarding Pacific Gas & Electric in the bay area and was published in February 2014, making it very current.

Judges: SDG&E President & COO Steve Davis, SDG&E Vice President of Operations Support Mike Schneider and ISM San Diego President Mark Malher were asked to select a winning team based on the relevance and innovation of solutions as well as presentation skills. The team of students (Breanna Barnes, Brian Maurer and Alex Riolo) from the University of San Diego won the competition, which earned them lodging and conference registration to the 99th Annual ISM Conference in Las Vegas. Congratulations to all of the students who participated and thank you SDG&E for hosting such a successful event!
