The data presents answers to four main research questions. The dataset presents the principles of effectuation relevant to the DVO and the application of the elements based on the perceptions of the participants and the moderators concerned. In addition, the dataset presents answers to what informs the choice for the three solution choices namely; reorganisation/better return than in liquidation (BriL)/Liquidation and lastly, the principles of effectuation and their relationship with reasonable prospect when evaluating a DVO.
