In the Second Edition of this bestselling book Evert Gummesson presents a fresh approach to case study research. Stressing the need for involved rather than detached researchers, Gummesson links quality assessment of case study research to current total quality management thinking and proposes the concept of management action science - where the researcher is both actor and student - as the most advanced and rewarding approach to research. The book is written in an easy-to-read personal style and is laden with examples from academic research, real-world practice and management consultancy.

Review:

"Evert Gummesson’s piercing relevance on the major issues of management problems and how to tackle them with qualitative research is astounding and leads to great understanding." 

(Barney G. Glaser)

"This book is a welcome contribution to the theory of science and methodology. . . The use of examples from the author’s own experiences are particularly helpful." 

(Richard Teare Service Industries Journal)

"Evert Gummesson has made a most worthwhile contribution to management research. His views, which draw hundreds of references from many expertise areas, deserve attention and debate." 

(Edward Toomer and Ken Bowen Journal of Operational Research)
