Bridging the Theory-Practice Gap through Information Visualization

A research Project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation

A fundamental challenge for management and organization studies is to produce research results that are theoretically rigorous, and at the same time of practical relevance for professionals. To address this pressing issue, this SNF funded project has resulted in the development and application of a mixed methods approach for involving research participants in the process of data interpretation through visual means.
