Intervention Research Circle
Krainer, Lerchster and Goldman defined different phases for the intervention research circle (2012) as depicted in Figure 3. Their definition is the guideline for explaining the field research done for this thesis but the phases have been adopted as following: The first phase “preparation” included order clarification and project preparation and ended with the project start in the research team and in the researched company. The next phase “research” contained data collection through participating observation and literature research. In the third phase “follow-up”, the research report including evaluation and interpretation of research data was created; the end of this phase was the “project end”.
