BAM IB&IM SIG Event: Theorising from Qualitative Case Study Research

13th April 2018

The BAM International Business and International Management SIG ran an event on the 12th April titled ' Theorising from Qualitative Case Study Research' at Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham. 

The aim of this workshop is was to unpack the theorising potential of Qualitative Case Study Research. Emphasis will be placed on conducting Qualitative Case study Research under different philosophical orientations and its implications for theorising. In particular, the workshop with address the following questions:

  • What is Qualitative Case Study Research?

  • How do our paradigmatic assumptions shape Qualitative Case Study Research?

  • How do we theorise from Qualitative Case Study Research?

We will critically reflect on these questions by bringing in International Business, Philosophy of Science and Methodological literatures. We will discuss the limitations of inductive theory-building, and explore the utilisation of alternative approaches to theorising that can enhance the Case Study’s explanatory power and potential for contextualisation.

The workshop was very successful and well attended.
