Potential advantages of multiple case study research are seen in cross-case analysis.

A systematic comparison in cross-case analysis reveals similarities and differences and how they affect findings.

Such comparisons have been conducted previously regarding their philosophical assumptions and orientations, key elements of case study research, their range of application, and the lacks of methodological procedures in publications. This paper aims to compare case study research designs regarding their contributions to theory.

Case study research designs will be analyzed regarding their various strengths on a theory continuum.

) of case study designs and the continuum of theory.

It demonstrates that different designs have various strengths and that there is a fit between case study designs and different points on a theory continuum.These differences result in a portfolio of various case study research designs.Second, I outline and substantiate a theory continuum that varies between theory-building, theory development, and testing theory.Edmondson and Mc Manus () extended this debate by focusing on the practicality of theory and the importance of prescience.While these papers consider the whole range of methodological approaches on a higher level, they treat case studies as relatively homogeneous.Based on this continuum, I analyze and discuss each of the case study research designs with regard to their location on the theory continuum.This analysis is based on a detailed differentiation of the phenomenon (inside or outside the theory), the status of the theory, research strategy, and methods.This paper aims to delve into a deeper level of analysis by solely focusing on case study research designs and their respective fit on this theory continuum.This approach offers a more fine-grained understanding that sheds light on the diversity of case study research designs in terms of their differential theory contributions.Each case is analyzed as a single case on its own to compare the mechanisms identified, leading to theoretical conclusions (Vaughan : 178).As a result, case study research has different objectives in terms of contributing to theory.
