An editorial commentary about "What Constitutes a Methodological Contribution" showcasing NCA
‘’Disciplinary advances are dependent on two intertwined pillars: refinements in theory and refinement in methods. Numerous guides exist for making a theoretical contribution, yet mystery surrounds what exactly constitutes a methodological contribution. The goal of the paper is to eliminate, or at least significantly reduce, this mystery.’’
This editorial commentary about "What Constitutes a Methodological Contribution" by Donald Bergh, Brian Boyd, Kris Byron, Steve Gove, and David Ketchen has appeared in the Journal of Management. It showcases Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA) as the running example of their "life cycle model of a methodological contribution".
The NCA development team is very glad to receive this recognition!
