In the following chapter I attempt to clarify what will be studied throughout this thesis and how the data will be collected and analyzed. The term ‘Open Source Innovation’ will be defined and a conceptual framework for studying this topic will be presented. Along this framework I develop a more detailed set of questions for my research and propose resulting propositions to connect questions to data. In the last section my combination of research methodologies to best approach these questions and study the phenomenon of open source innovation will be explained.
