Abstract

When the research subject spans literary fields or where the context has a profound impact on the validity of existing theories it can be advantageous to alternate between inductive and deductive research methods in a cyclical fashion. This enables theorising using both the literature and empirical data and facilitates a quest to find appropriate theories within the plethora of literature from different domains, when seeking to explain previously unexplored ground between the bodies of knowledge. This paper reflects on a PhD students experiences during a study of the effects of trust on an individual’s propensity to share knowledge on an SME collaborative project, the challenges experienced and the cyclical methods used to overcome these. This cyclical research process is linked to experiential learning and action research and more abstract ways of visualizing the complex labyrinth of research on the boundaries of bodies of literature are explored.
