Chapter Contents: This chapter describes the research design undertaken in this doctoral research project. For this purpose, the chapter first aims to give an overview of existing IS research paradigms and methods (2.1 IS Research Paradigms and Methods), as well as an introduction to CSF research (2.2 CSF Research). Afterward, the implemented research strategy, including the research paradigms and methods adopted and used within the research project, is presented (2.3 Research Strategy). Finally, in order to evaluate our research results, we introduce four evaluation criteria with regard to the trustworthiness of qualitative research (2.4 Trustworthiness of the Research).
