The discussion of methods is an important aspect of scientific research (Popper, 2002). The research process is the application of scientific methods to the complex task of discovering answers to questions (Nunamaker/Chen/Purdin, 1991). This chapter develops a research design for this research project (Chmielewicz, 1979). Based on the design goal and the design artefact of this research, this chapter first develops the necessary research method foundations and then derives a research design for this work based on these foundations.
