In this professional development workshop at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting 2019 in Boston, we will discus the logic behind Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA) and explain how it differs from other research methods. We will use examples from different fields to illustrate its value and importance. We will also demonstrate the application of NCA and show how you can analyse data to test necessity theories.
An excellent review of the literature on strategic Human Resource Management shows that Necessary Condition Analysis can be used to identify essential HR practices and move the field forward.
We wrote a guide that shows how you can conduct a complete Necessary Condition Analysis in only three steps. It is freely available in PDF.
