Discussion: Principles and Methods of Qualitative Data Collection

A key requirement of the case study design is to collect data from multiple sources. Specifically, all Walden DBA independent scholars conducting case studies must collect data from at least two sources, interviews being one of those mandatory sources. Yin (2014) identified six sources of evidence to include (a) documentation, (b) archival records, (c) interviews, (d) direct observation, (e) participant observation, and (f) physical artifacts (p. 105). You will be required to select one source other than interviews to meet the data collection requirements.
