Multiple-case data The researcher will develop themes or categories in order to more efficiently organize the data. These themes may be derived from theoretical literature, an existing framework or schema, or the current data set.

The researcher may select themes or categories from technical literature or may use ‘in vivo codes,’ which are words or themes that the researcher develops based on the interviewees’ own words or institutional or organizational jargon.
