"If you were part of a study team trying to figure out what to do in a complicated (i.e., multi-party, multi-issue, technically complex) situation, you would want to rush out and get a copy of Embedded Case Study Methods by Roland Scholz and Olaf Tietje.
"Scholz and Olaf have developed an important methodology to integrate complex cases. Their approach combines the best of quantitative and qualitative methodologies to create new insights that would not be available to researchers using more conventional approaches."
"This is an excellent book that serves an important purpose. It should become a valuable resource in research methods courses covering issues of case research. Doctoral students especially, should find the book particularly helpful. The conceptual material and methods of knowledge integration presented in this book provide scholars with the background and tools necessary to conduct case studies that meet the field's most rigorous scientific standards."
This book should be required reading for anyone involved with case study analysis.
This is a bold contribution to case study methodology, perhaps more suitable for postgraduate student considering a mixed methods approach, or a research team collaborating on a new type of project. Scholz and team introduce the transdisciplinary case study approach (TCS), which they developed at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). There are case studies from 5 different disciplines: neuropsychology, education, law, business, and environmental sciences. An excellent guide for any researcher contemplating a trans-disciplinary or complex case study.
The book is at the forefront of assessing good case study approaches, how they can be managed, and the conditions under which they are effective. The book makes academics aware of useful theories to explore ways in which case studies can be useful.
Embedded case study methods: Integrating quantitative and qualitative knowledge focuses on different aspects of the case study research approach, and argues that systematic embedded case studies can be used as a research methodology in its own right. The authors show how embedded case studies can be employed to qualitative, quantitative and mixed research approaches. The text provides examples of how embedded case studies can be used in different fields to solve complex research problems in areas such as: neuropsychology, educational sciences, law, business and environmental science.
This is a wonderfully in-depth reference for case study research. It does a fine job of presenting the analytic nature of case study research, which is suitable for doctoral level study.
