Perren, Lew and Ram, Monder (2004) Case-study method in small business and entrepreneurial research: mapping boundaries and perspectives International Small Business Journal, 22 (1). pp. 83-101. ISSN 1741-2870Full text not available from this repository.
The case-study method has a long and respected history in the mainstream management literature. The philosophy and implications of the case-study method have received considerable attention and there are a number of standard texts on the approach. The method is also gaining acceptance, along with other qualitative methods, within the small business and entrepreneurial research community. Yet there has been little discussion of the distinctive philosophical consequences of applying the case-study approach in this area. This article will address this gap by mapping the paradigms adopted by small business and entrepreneurial case-study researchers. This will provide a platform upon which to explore the consequences of the paradigmatic position that researchers adopt.
