Abstract

This paper provides the background to a study from which sample findings will be presented and discussed at the ARVOVA 2008 conference in Philadelphia. It explains the origins and aims of a continuing collaborative inquiry with third sector Chief Executives, gives a summary history of the project, and describes the methodological issues involved in doing 'twin-track' research – that is, research aimed at producing both practice knowledge and formal theory.
