According to Stake (2000), the case study method has a place in both qualitative and quantitative research. Rather than a research methodological choice, the case study method enables researchers to carry out their research efforts holistically, hermeneutically and analytically. The case study method is ubiquitous in numerous research disciplines ranging from education to social science (Yin, 2014). Research questions such as “who” and “what” require a change in actions and situations underpin the case study conceptual structure. The case study method seems relevant and appropriate to investigate how indigenous natives in primitive and economically deprived conditions transition to independent sustainable communities through social entrepreneurship (Jensen, 2010; Salazar, 2012). Information and examples for this case study stemmed from the BEST website (, the book Saving Paradise (Teo & Patterson, 2005) and Albert Teo, the founder of BEST.
