Consumers' Journey Into Access-Based Consumption

The current research utilizes a narrative analysis approach to unearth a macro narrative depicting different points in consumers’ journey with access based consumption (ABC). Drawing on 19- in depth interviews, the unearthed macro-narrative resembles a pinwheel, featuring eight “turns in the road”: initiation/rejection, experimentation/renunciation, contamination/alternation, and devotion/reversion.
