Dr. Tatiana Andreeva together with Professor Jan Dul (Rotterdam School of Management) conducted a workshop on Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA) at the British Academy of Management Annual Conference. Our theories often claim that a certain factor is necessary to be put and kept in place to avoid guaranteed failure. Practitioners often talk about “must haves”, “bottlenecks”, “critical factors”, or “disqualifiers”. NCA is an emerging data analysis method that allows us to properly test these claims. This workshop aimed to introduce NCA to researchers who are not yet familiar with it, discuss recent developments of the method, and demonstrate how the method can be applied to a range of management problems.
