Dynamic Pattern Synthesis is one of a new range of case-based methods that seeks to balance the search for overall quantitative patterns based on aggregations of case information, with the complexity and diversity of individual cases. These methods try to avoid making assumptions about case similarity when using evidence of relationships between variables that seem to show cases are similar. Orthodox methods often ignore important aspects of case diversity and oversimplify the aggregate impact of some variables. Human and organisational diversity is vital to consider with greater attention, if applied social science research is to have a more useful impact on policy and practice in the future.
