  1. Notes. Because “stage” is a multi-value variable, we convert it to a fuzzy set when manually calculating the configurations’ consistency and coverage. We use the indirect calibration method proposed by Ragin (2008) and assigned 0, 0.33, 0.67, and 1 to the seed, start-up, development and maturity stage, respectively. “0” means “fully out” of the set of maturity stage; “1” means “fully in” the set of maturity stage; “0.33” signifies more “out” than “in”; “0.67” denotes more “in” than “out”
