Research methods Analysis: Microsoft Case Study
Identify which type of case study and briefly discuss about its approach?
After reading the initial phases of the attached case studies, the nuances that it bears seem to resemble with the exploratory type of case study. The justifying statement that can be provided in this regard is that the entire case study hovers around the details of Linkedin inquisition against the established facet of Microsoft. This trend of presenting information pertain certain resemblance with the exploratory type of case study (Yin, 2013). An exploratory case study is supposed to transmit a subject in such a way that intends to establish the same as the central concern of the suite. It happens to function in the current suite. The attributes of an exploratory kind of case study is apparently inescapable where it encourages facilitating the birth of further formal long-term research suite championing the prevalent synergy between Linkedin and Microsoft. However, it can be depicted with conviction that this is an exploratory kind of case study since the vulnerable traits are comparatively evident on that regard.
The approach that the exploratory case studies are prone to adopt can be stated as the urge to establish the core component as the matter of paramount importance. The attached case might study hover around the rhetoric information and gossip in the virtual domain but it has never shifted from its primary concern of exploring the symbiosis of Linkedin and Microsoft against the notion of acquisition. It appear that the chief concern is not the nuances that symbolize the certainty of the inquisition to happen but the inquisition itself.
With reference to case study identify the role of the researcher in your own words?
In an empirical tone, the role of the researcher should explore the probability of the acquisition of Linkedin into the prevalent facet of Microsoft from a objective point of view. This objectivism is an imperative tool for analysing such exploratory case studies since subjectivism always emphasizes to focus on the detailed data that might ensure the birth of a further study suite (Zainal, 2017). In this regard, the demeanour of subjectivism tends the researcher to make a statement first and provide rhetorical quirks and several other trivial observations to justify that. The exploratory case study typically demands for a deductive attribute towards the matter of concern and constantly nudges the researcher to wait for the clue before arriving into a decision. On the other hand, subjectivism urges for a considerably instinctive perspective that indulges the researcher to commit a comment without anticipating the legitimacy of the comment within the respective domain of analysis.
Furthermore, the researcher is also supposed to retain an impersonal tone while analysing the attached case study. It is also an imperative trait that the researcher might wield during the analysis of an exploratory case study (Zainal, 2017). It is imperative since it is considered as the precursor of the objective perspective that the researcher is already advised to possess. This objective tone encourages the respective researcher to deal with the embedded details of what has not been expressed in the above discussion. Furthermore, it ensures the unbiased demeanour of the researcher towards the informative details of the case study as the prior regulator of the fecundity of the text.
Discuss in your own words how the approach in relation to the specific steps. How the sequence has been taken place?
An exploratory case study typically does not imbibe any chronology while transmitting the facts. Incipiently, it is very evident from the approach of the narrator that probably he/she does not know what they are going to talk about. Apparently, it contradicts the systematic approach of narration since it seeks to tap the fleeting aspects prior to the main concern and immediately incorporates it within the prime column of discourse (Yin, 2013). Thus, apparently it does not maintain any sequence. In terms of contextual evidences, it can be stated that while narrating the ramp of Linkedin in China as endeavouring to establish as a cardinal nocturne, the author of the study apparently seem to digress and started talking about the specific dynamics of a CRM solution.
However, the strata of the proposed information, apart from their apparent disorder, seem to be in harmony that is advocated by the typical trend of narrating an exploratory case study. Thus, most of the information within the text appear as floating emblems of the major column which has inherited this disorder from the way of presentation (Yin, 2013). As an inevitable consequence, the information might not delve into a considerable depth, but the periphery of discussion is that mammoth that it intends to incorporate every fact regarding the prime concern.
In the light of the above discussion , it can be stated that the steps that the narrator have feebly attempted to conform with has inherited this profound disorder from the approved order of an exploratory case study.
