A multi case study on clusters and their potential to bridge institutional voids

Part of the Markt- und Unternehmensentwicklung Markets and Organisations book series (MAU)


To find answers to these research questions an exploratory qualitative study was conducted. I continue using the first person “I”, as part of this research is of autoethnographic nature. Qualitative research is often criticized for being subjective, however, as qualitative research is based on the interaction of the researcher with the researched object or subject, subjectivity cannot be simply excluded as a disruptive factor, but is rather an essential component that the researcher needs to reflect carefully. Hence, it is coherent to use the first person singular in the description.
