Once the entire document was coded, the document was reviewed again with the aim to converge or diverge the data using a logical analysis matrix (Patton, 2015). During this process, the dimensions for each category were also identified.
Once the categories were identified, the relationship among these categories was established using the axial coding procedure. This process
