Measurement Process Design: Measuring Supply Management’s Budget Effects – A Qualitative Approach
Finding creative problem solutions and thereby acting future-oriented as a vehicle for change, as discussed by several authors (e.g. Borja de Mozota, 2007; Lojacono & Zaccai, 2004; Michlewski, 2008; Ravasi & Lojacono, 2005; Romme, 2003), has been the reason for selecting design sciences as the research strategy for this thesis. The second draft of the savings measurement framework has already been detailed and incorporates the literature as well as practice perspective. However, it remains theoretical; or as Mintzberg (1979, p. 587) says: “It is the anecdotal data that enable us to do the building. Theory building seems to require rich description, the richness that comes from anecdote.”
