Change point analysis and assessment: an integrated methodological design
by Sabine Mueller; Helle Neergaard; John P. Ulhoi
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 56, No. 2/3/4, 2011

Abstract: The aim of this article is to develop an analytical framework for studying processes such as continuous innovation and business development in high-tech SME clusters that transcends the traditional qualitative-quantitative divide. The article's key contribution is the conceptual integration of four existing and well-recognised but separate approaches to studying events, processes, and change, namely change-point analysis (CPA), event-history analysis (EHA), critical-incident technique (CIT), and sequence analysis (SA) into a single design framework which is especially useful for studying complex and long-term or ongoing processes.
