The chosen methods do have limitations, however, such as the assertion that theory building from case studies may result in ‘a narrow and idiosyncratic theory. The risks are that the theory describes a very idiosyncratic phenomenon, or that the theorist is unable to raise the level of the generality of the theory’ (Eisenhardt, 1989).
