Additional Book Details

`This is an excellent text for anyone wishing to explore the possibilities of a grounded theory approach in management and organizational research. The first two parts ought to be essential reading in methods courses, regardless of the field of investigation′ - Organization Studies



`…resources for conducting grounded theory are spread across a number of disciplines… making it difficult for organization and management scholars to track them down. This book describes the grounded theory approach for organization and management researchers needing to fully understand the possibilities and challenges of this method. It brings together the broadly dispersed discussions of the logic and practices of grounded theory, restoring this style of qualitative research for students and teachers of organization and management′ - Management Research News



′Given its content and style of writing, this book will be useful not only to organisational scholars bit also to those such fields as sociology, nursing, education and psychology′ - Mihaela Kelemen, Nurse Researcher
