Project training evaluation: Reshaping boundary objects and assumptions
Summary

The subject of the research and its epistemological underpinning align it with a qualitative approach as the focus is exploration and development of new insights.A comparative case study methodology was adopted in order to undertake an in-depth investigation into a specific set of circumstances in a particular context. These were instrumental and exploratory case studies, in that their purpose was to provide insights into an issue that will enable a deeper understanding of the role of boundary objects for identifying project needs and subsequent of their outcome effects.
