The Application of Case Study Design in Qualitative Research Projects. 2 Abstract In recent years, the case study research design has substantially gone through methodological advancements. This growth has caused a rise in a mixed, flexible research technique capable of giving a comprehensive and detailed understanding of various span of problems across several disciplines. Change and advancements have stemmed from the parallel impacts of historical variations in approaches to research and individual researcher's liking, the frame of minds, and interpretations of the design. The case study design advancements have resulted from researchers' contributions from varying disciplines with unique philosophical viewpoints, thus creating a variety of meanings and approaches. For a student researcher who is not very conversant with using case study design, such variety can confuse its application to their work. Therefore, this article will delve into the development of case study research, discuss methodological contrasts, and summarize crucial aspects to guide researchers' available choices (Harrison, Birks, Franklin and Mills, 2020). Keywords: Case study, Method, Methodology, research design, qualitative research, research Introduction Case study research has advanced in publicity as a practical methodology for examining and understanding complex problems in the actual world settings. Case study research designs have received popularity in implementation across several disciplines, mostly in the social sciences, law, academics, business, and health sectors, to address various research questions. Consequently, over the past few years, via the implementation of several methodological techniques, case study research design has gotten subjected to significant advancement. Change and improvements have stemmed from the parallel impacts of historical variations in approaches

The focal point to these disparities is the supporting ontological and epistemological orientations of the people involved in developing case study research. The advancements of the case study design have resulted from researchers' contributions from varying disciplines with unique philosophical viewpoints. It is imperative to note that their philosophical support has given rise to many different approaches currently used. Consequently, several designs have received recommendations for preparing, planning, and carrying out case study research with guidance on crucial considerations for obtaining success. As a result, while case study research has developed to be a mixed, flexible research technique, the disparity in meaning, application, validity, and purposefulness tends to confuse its use (Harrison, Birks, Franklin and Mills, 2020).
