Case Study = Empirical Investigation + Contemporary Phenomenon + Real Context
- Empirical Investigation: Case study is a strategy in which an empirical investigation for particular contemporary phenomenon in its real context with using multiple sources is done (Robson, 2002).
- Contemporary Phenomenon: The case is “a unit, entity, or phenomenon with defined boundaries’’ (Marriam, 1998).
- Real Context: The case study is best way for “appreciating the complexity of organizational phenomenon” (Yin, 1994) and study of human affair (Stake, 2000). The context of the phenomenon is also important in case study research because the real boundaries within ‘phenomenon’ and ‘context’ are not clear (Yin, 2003)....Sign up
