This popular handbook has been updated to provide today's beginning researchers with everything they need to plan and implement case studies. Starting with how to establish a rationale for conducting a systematic case study and identify literature that informs the research effort, this resource shows students how to determine an appropriate research design and conduct informative interviews, observations, and document analyses. It also describes methods for deriving meaning from data and communicating the results. Finally, the authors delineate the ways to verify the results attained. Students and advisors can use these easy-to-follow steps to shape a thesis, dissertation, or independent project from conceptualization to completion.
