Research strategy: how will a researcher plan to answer the research question?
based on qualitative and interpretative research. collects and analyses participants experiences as complete stories with chronological order to make sure of comprehensive understanding and effective analysis. (time-consuming). Helps the researcher gain deeper insights into narrators' experiences. As you get a description of the experiences.
Coding stages: Open (reorganization into categories), Axial (recognizing relationships) Selective (integration of these categories to build a theory) --> constant caomparison, higher level of analytical coding.
explore a wide range of business and management issues. Is used to develop theoretical explanations of social interactions and processes in a wide range of context. Systematic approach to collect and analys qualitative data (interview --> analyse --> collect new)
find solutions to real organizational problems. Participative approach, emphasizing the purpose of the research, process with different stages, involvement of practionaers, different forms of knowledge,
Critical Ethnography: explore and explain the impact of power, privilege and authority on the participants
Interpretive ethnography: subjective view to identify multiple meanings.
Realist ethnography: objectivity, facts or data about structures are usually observed. Quantitative data, detailed background and the nature of the cultural interactions is being observed without any subjective view.
study of the culture or social world of a group (qualitative).
Embedded: more than one unit of analysis (department of the organization.
Holistic: refers to the unit of analysis (the whole organization)
Multiple case: whether findings or the fist case can occur in other cases and change the studied set of case. (Literal replication: similar results are predicted, Theoretical replication: different results) --> Starts deductively
Single case: critical case, using a single case and defining it as the actual case
Purpose: to understand the topic's dynamics (the interactions between the subject of the case its context) and the context of the topic. Intensive, in-depth nature.
a detailed inquiry into a topic or phenomenon within its real-life setting.
Archival and documentary research
textual, visual and audio representations. The scope has been increased due to the digitalization of data and online archives.
exploratory, descriptive, collect quantitative data, gives more control over the research process and enables the researcher to generate findings via sampling that are representative. (not as wide ranging tho)
Quasi experiment: the difference is that they will not be signed randomly.
Classical experiments: two groups that are similar in all aspects relevant to the research
The researcher tries to control an alternative explanation to the planned intervention and eliminate threats to internal validity because they have the same external influences.
Control group: no intervention is made
Experimental group: form of planned intervention or manipulation will be tested
Complex experiments: consider the size of change as well and the relative importance of two or more independent variables.
Simple experiments: link between two variables
Experiments use predictions / hypotheses, not research questions. (Null hypothesis : predicts there will not be a significant difference or causal relationship and Alternative hypothesis : there may be difference)
purpose: to study how will the modification of one independent variable change a dependent variable.
