Table of Contents
This book offers a complete, five-step method for developing sound, field-tested theory in applied disciplines. Unlike many existing methods, which cover only the initial conceptualization of a theory, the authors offer a complete approach, from conceptualizing a theory to creating relevant assessment criteria, establishing a research agenda to test the theorys validity, applying the theoretical concepts in the real world, and using that experience to further refine and improve the theory.
