The purpose of this article is to discuss and justify a research strategy to be used within a mixed methodology study of the enterprise culture (EC)-the NHS policy to produce resource utilisation, quality and efficiency improvements demonstrated by leading private sector organisations. The findings are also a guide to other researchers in this area. It concludes that a single site case study approach is justified to research a deductive theory in a combination of methods that has a dominant quantitative element.
