Sample text

Because for me, even in the doctoral days, I started working at the same time as a research associate developing classroom material, so I was learning a craft that would support me as a teacher as well as a researcher. That internal motivation was powerful and, even though today I’m emeritus, right now I have four cases that I’m working on because I love doing what I’m doing. There’s also pride involved.

They term this an ‘aggregated strategy’. In Chapter 13, Jon Erland Lervik shows how three different research designs – the single-N, small-N and large-N designs – can be used to capture the same phenomenon, namely the multinational corporation (MNC). In this way he powerfully challenges the widespread assumption that the ‘case’ always equals the firm. Lervik contributes to the diversity of available research designs for case researchers by outlining the three established alternatives. Moreover, he introduces an additional design that bridges mixed methods and the single-N case design.
