Lee Sechrest, Ph.D., Michelle Stewart, Timothy R. Stickle, Souraya Sidani
The aim of this Toolkit is to provide a framework for case studies that will substantially enhance their effectiveness and make them appropriately persuasive to the audiences for which they are intended. This Toolkit is meant to be comprehensive, addressing the entire range of purposes and types of case studies. It develops a general research protocol, however, that addresses potential deficiencies in case studies in such a way that it can be adapted to the needs of individual investigators and projects. The intent of this effort is to enhance the usefulness of case studies and to make their production as straightforward as that of any other research product.
