This chapter reviews the purpose of case-study research as a complement to the cross-organization studies described in the previous chapters, with in-depth data collected from employees within organizations. Within-organization research can examine internal factors that are not usually captured in administrative, national, or cross-organization datasets, and can study the interactions between individual experience and organizational context in great detail. Furthermore, the case-study approach can be combined with the results of survey responses from employees from varying levels of the organizations. The chapter also considers the value of combining the results of organizational survey efforts with findings from the interviews of key personnel such as senior managers and supervisors, and focus groups of employees with and without disabilities, and managers who perhaps have or have not had an opportunity to supervise an individual with a disability.

Keywords:   case-study research, case-study approach, within-organization research, organizational survey data, interviews, focus groups
