This chapter discusses a complex research model that accommodates qualitative organizational learning methods and permits researchers to formulate clear research questions that are then explored through quantitative methodologies. Using a multitiered research model, it reinterprets the Procter & Gamble case material presented in “Timescapes: A Multi-level Approach for Understanding Time Use in Complex Organizations” and addresses the issues discussed in Sherry's and Broberg, Bailey, and Hunt's commentaries (both found in this volume).
