Abstract

Performance Management (PM) is widely studied conceptually and empirically especially within the developed countries. Empirical studies on PM adopt either a purely inductive reasoning or deductive reasoning. Studies that adopted abductive reasoning did that using mixed methods. This paper presents how abductive reasoning was adopted following an interpretivist philosophy in the explorative study of PM within the Nigerian public health sector.
