Konteksti avamisel märgitakse muuhulgas:

Following Kuhn’s (1970) conceptualization of paradigms, strategic management has been recognized as a multiparadigmatic body of research. […] most previous paradigmatic discussions in the strategy field typically match paradigms to theories or schools of thought while understanding the paradigm concept in the Kuhnian sense. […] Earlier studies tend to overlook the debate on philosophical meta-theoretical assumptions (ontological, epistemological and methodological) and undervalue less traditional streams of research.

Artikli eesmärk:

to review how different approaches to social enquiry have been used in strategy research and how the main paradigms engage with strategy.

Kokkuvõttes väidetakse:

four onto-epistemological spaces conceptualized as metaparadigms emerged from the analysis, which were labelled contemporary positivist, contemporary realist, interpretive and critical postmodernist. […] the contemporary positivist – is the dominant view in strategy. It embraces approaches that share realist ontological assumptions and the modernist/positivist epistemology and a few taken-for-granted underlying assumptions such as the ideas of fit and adaptation view, which reduce the context to a set of contingent variables. […] The second meta-paradigm is the contemporary realist, which comprises approaches with objectivist ontology and subjectivist epistemology, such as critical realists and strategy pragmatism. […] Third, the interpretive paradigm builds on a spectrum of various onto-epistemological positions and is maintained by scholars with different degrees of constructivist engagement that leave behind material and concrete organizations/environments and use intimate methodologies. […] the fourth meta-paradigm covers a spectrum of onto-epistemological positions oriented towards constructivist and subjectivist epistemologies and involves several methodological positions, many of which embrace ethnomethodology or phenomenology and emphasize the use of the discourse analysis method.
