The research question are separated into 4 main objectives.
The research framework shows the overall idea of the research adopted case study stages from Yin (2010) and Khan et al (2011)Adopted from Yin (2010) and Khan et al. (2011)
The table illustrates mapping objectives-approaches-outcomes with the research framework.Reason:To clarify the relationships between the research outcomes & research framework.
