THEORY BUILDING FROM CASES: OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES 第一段最後一行為此文之重心: …, we focus on the related research strategy of theory building from cases, particularly multiple cases.
THEORY BUILDING FROM CASES: OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES Conclusion: 結論之重點 Theory building from case studies is an increasingly popular and relevant research strategy…… Challenge: research relying on rich qualitative data is becoming more common. Mitigate(減輕）through precise language and thoughtful research design: (此部份為作者提出之方法) Careful justification of theory building Theoretical sampling of cases Interviews that limit informant bias Rich presentation of evidence in tables and appendixes Clear statement of theoretical arguments The result is fresh theory that bridges well from rich qualitative evidence to mainstream deductive research.
BETTER STORIES AND BETTERCONSTRUCTS: THE CASE FOR RIGOR(精 密的） AND COMPARATIVE LOGIC 1991 stanford University 第一段： I focused on multiple cases and how to develop theory from them, but I paid scant attention to the important role of single- case research. -> redressing that imbalance 作者此文重視“single-case research”的重要
BETTER STORIES AND BETTER CONSTRUCTS: THE CASE FOR RIGOR AND COMPARATIVE此篇文章之整體架構 LOGIC 第一段 ARE SINGLE-CASE STUDIES SUPERIOR? ARE THE CLASSIC STUDIES LOOSE SINGLE CASES? IS “BETTER STORIES VERSUS BETTER CONSTRUCTS” A FALSE DICHOTOMY? 錯誤的二分法－＞呼應題目 CONCLUSION
BETTER STORIES AND BETTER CONSTRUCTS: THE CASE FOR RIGOR AND COMPARATIVE LOGIC閱讀心得重點: … good story telling is an essential first step, but good theory is fundamentally the result of rigorous (精密的、正確的） methodology and comparative, multiple- case logic. This is as evident in the classic case studies as it is in contemporary multiple-case research.
Better Stories, Not Better Constructs, to Generate Better Theory: A Rejoinder to Eisenhardt 1991 Brigham Young University 1989 Eisenhardt presented an approach to building theory using case studies, which summarized a hybrid form of case research…… 相關資料： http://www.getcited.org/pub/103368440 Rejoinder:答辯,回答,應答; 還嘴,頂嘴此篇文章應為上一篇之回應文。
Better Stories, Not Better Constructs, to Generate Better Theory: A Rejoinder to Eisenhardt 第一段 第四行：第一段重點 For us this approach is paradoxical because although its purported purpose is theory generation, it includes many of the attributes of hypothesis-testing research. ->如老師註解：testing != building / creation ->rejoinder

Better Stories, Not Better Constructs, to Generate Better Theory: A Rejoinder to Eisenhardt Summary Comments (結論重點) …Our goal has not been to discourage such efforts but rather to point out what researchers miss if they overlook the advantages of the classic case study. …we hope that many scholars will continue to try to tell good stories that have theoretical import.(兩者兼顧)
