    Abstract

    Case studies are a useful analytical tool for researching firms and industries in transition, so as to gain insights that may not be found in historical time series. However, it is incumbent on researchers to show process rigor in using this tool for theory-building and theory-testing. The article makes prescriptions for case study research design and execution. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
