The importance of qualitative data is appreciated in the System Dynamics field since its early days. In his description of information content, Forrester (1980) categorized information into three main databases; Mental, written and numerical. Most of the information available to modeler is qualitative in nature. Forrester (1991) discusses that despite qualitative information’s importance, management and social scientists have long been neglected this “far richer and more informative body of information that exist in the knowledge and experience of those in the active, working world.” Luna-Reyes and Andersen (2003) indicate the lack of well defined protocols to incorporate qualitative information during the modeling process. In their paper, they discuss the suitability of several qualitative data collection methods in the different stages of the modeling process. In their conclusion, they indicate the need for the development and testing formal protocols involving qualitative social research techniques to support the modeling process. This paper is indented to respond such need by developing and testing a formal protocol to support the test of a generic dynamic theory by using qualitative data analysis techniques. These techniques will be used to do secondary data analysis of previously done interviews by other researchers.
