Conducting case study research in operations management

Conducting case study research in operations management Recently, there have been numerous calls for more empirical field‐based research to be conducted in operations management (OM). Knowledge of how operations systems work can be enhanced significantly through contact with the “real‐world” conditions that OM models seek to describe. Case study research is a primary means of exploring field conditions but is an unfamiliar methodology for many in OM. Moreover, the case study method is viewed with scepticism by those who consider it to be a weak form of research, one that lacks rigor and objectivity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Operations Management Wiley

Abstract

Recently, there have been numerous calls for more empirical field‐based research to be conducted in operations management (OM). Knowledge of how operations systems work can be enhanced significantly through contact with the “real‐world” conditions that OM models seek to describe. Case study research is a primary means of exploring field conditions but is an unfamiliar methodology for many in OM. Moreover, the case study method is viewed with scepticism by those who consider it to be a weak form of research, one that lacks rigor and objectivity.
