—The objective of this work is to investigate the
content analysis methodology in the strategic propensity such as
explorative/exploitative behavior. After theoretical analysis on

authors have applied the content analysis methodology to a
practice case. The conclusion is that the qualitative content
analysis is a good methodology to study the strategy propensity
having the same results of the other methodologies used in the
