In the study, a longitudinal multiple case design was used to capture the experiences (in transformation) of four Zimbabwean companies spanning from 1980 when Zimbabwe attained its independence to 2000. This article illustrates how to perform a cross-case analysis to gain deeper appreciation of the challenges faced by the four companies and emerging transformation themes. The outcomes are: • a condensation of nine emerging themes into seven, and • the establishment of links between the sixteen emerging challenges unearthed and the synthesised seven themes. The seven themes have been used to develop the Madzivire Collaborative Transformation (MaCoTra) Model, a subject of a separate article. I recommend replication studies on organisational transformation in emerging economies to check the recurrence of the seven themes and sixteen challenges.
