Foundation Case: The Australasian Food Co-op
- 690 Downloads
This chapter describes the first case study, the ‘foundation’ for the rest of the research project. The case itself is disguised, according to the wishes of the enterprise concerned. As mentioned above, the case is an extraordinarily rich one. This, in conjunction with the generative power of the Grounded Theory method, has meant that for reasons of readability an abridged version of the case and findings is contained in this chapter. A detailed version can be obtained from the author’s companion website on demand.
