ISBN: 9781412978378
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Social Science

The book describes in-depth qualitative interviewing from the very beginning to last step, from its underlying philosophy and assumptions to project design, analysis and write up. In responsive interviewing, the stages of research-design, data gathering, and analysis-are intimately linked. Researchers perform analysis throughout their projects, not just at the end, so that as they learn more, they can modify both the research problem they are exploring and the questions they ask. The book assumes no prior knowledge or experience, and the authors' tone is conversational, revealing that interviewers can make mistakes, recover from them and still obtain rich and meaningful information.

"This highly diffuse, personal orientation to research is an interesting contrast to more impersonal works and a useful reminder that the results of research are often intimately bound with the individuals who collect the data. The most likely audience for the work is beginning researchers who are interested in exploring avenues of qualitative research. The breezy style and anecdotal content may. . . make the work most suitable as a source for undergraduate methods courses. --Herbert Snyder in Library and Information Science Research "This work is intended to help students in social work, sociology, and political science develop skills in qualitative interviewing." --Journal of Social Work Education "This engaging and readable book is an introductory overview about how to design, collect, code, interpret, and present the results of qualitative research based upon interviews. . . . The authors are two experienced academics. . . . The book will be most appropriate for professors and students who are exploring qualitative research methods for the first time. When combined with more detailed articles and illustrative exercises, it could also serve very well as the organizing text for an advanced undergraduate or first graduate course in qualitative interviewing. Happily, its conversational tone and absence of pedagogical jargon also will make the book inviting and accessible to practitioners in new product development and market research. . . . This is a usable and enjoyable introduction to a research approach that has seen increasing use in recent years for new product and process introductions. Its primary audience is academicians and students who will find it a very good introductory text. Practitioners, particularly those who wish to ''get close to customers,'' will find here some useful advice about how to question customers and how to read their answers. More important, they will find out what to expect of qualitative market researchers who work with new product development or implementation teams." --Patricia W. Meyers in The Journal of Product Innovation Management Qualitative Interviewing provides a comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to the theory and practice of qualitative interviewing. With this volume, qualitative researchers will learn how to design research based on interview data; stimulate conversation; absorb what is being said; and synthesize, analyze, and present an informed description of the data. The authors, both experienced teachers and researchers with nearly 50 years of post-Ph.D. research experience in qualitative interviewing, emphasize the importance of cultural, contextual, and personal influences on the sharing and unveiling of meaning. Their book links qualitative interviewing techniques with theories of how people communicate meaning. Qualitative Interviewing is an essential text for a wide range of students and social science researchers who do interviews as part of case studies or as ethnographic research.

Qualitative Research in the Study of Leadership

Author: Karin Klenke
Publisher: Emerald Group Publishing
ISBN: 9780080464107
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Science

Although an increasingly growing number of books on qualitative research methods are currently available, there is not a text that examines the use of qualitative research methods in the context of the study of leadership which has produced a voluminous body of research. This book is intended to fill this void. It discusses the use of qualitative research methods in leadership studies beginning with an examination of the paradigmatic assumptions underlying qualitative research. The book chronicles the gradually increasing legitimacy of qualitative inquiry in a discipline in which the hegemony of the quantitative paradigm continues to prevail. A variety of qualitative methods are presented that can be placed on a continuum ranging from purely qualitative (e.g., phenomenology, ethnography, grounded theory) to highly quantitative (e.g., certain forms of content analysis, historiometry and mixed methods designs). The book also includes a chapter on the use nontextual, image-based sources of data for qualitative leadership research. For each of the qualitative methods discussed, empirical leadership research illustrating the application of these methods is reviewed and analyzed. The book is intended for students of leadership ranging from graduate students to seasoned leadership scholars. Finally, it was written with leadership practitioners in mind who wish to broaden their understanding of new developments in leadership research.

Genre:

Der Klassiker über den qualitativen Forschungsansatz der "Grounded Theory", geschrieben von den Entwicklern dieser Methode "Obwohl unser Buch sich in erster Linie an Soziologen richtet, glauben wir, dass es jedem nutzen kann, der daran interessiert ist, soziale Phänomene zu untersuchen politischer, pädagogischer, wirtschaftlicher, industrieller oder welcher Art auch immer." In der Tat ist "Grounded Theory" quer durch die wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen zum Standardbegriff der qualitativen Sozialforschung ge - worden. Die inzwischen zum Klassiker avancierte Arbeit von Glaser und Strauss eröffnet eine lehrbare und auch lernbare Forschungsstrategie. Das Konzept bietet eine Antwort auf das Problem, die oft schmerzlich empfundene Lücke zwischen empirischer Forschung und Theorie zu schliessen.
