In this paper we propose that like business strategies, national strategies can be studied. National strategies are actually developed, and the problem for researchers is to be able to identify and specify what they are. We tackle more specifically the methodological issues related to this type of research. In a first section, we discuss why it is legitimate to undertake studies of such complex systems as that of a nation. In particular, the conceptual framework that has been used to collect the data is presented. Then, the methodology used in our studies is described. The case of Taiwan (Daleu-Daibé & Hafsi, 1993) is presented as an illustration in section three. Finally, in section four we discuss some of the methodological issues that have been identified. In conclusion, a few comments and recommendations for research are offered.
