Summary This case study examines the application of general analytical inductive qualitative approach within the field of entrepreneurship and management research. It critically assesses the research design and analytical processes that facilitated the development of a framework for understanding how small enterprises grow and develop in turbulent economies, such as that in Sri Lanka. It also discusses the challenges of the general analytical inductive qualitative approach. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with Sri Lankan small enterprises throughout a 1-year period. As a part of data analysis, interviews were transcribed and a provisional list of common features and divergent cases identified. Deviant features were accommodated either by linking them with other common features or by generating a new category with unique feature. Eventually, cross-case analysis within and between data from small enterprises led to emergent themes
