The authors skillfully break down and map the various paradigms and their associated ontological and epistemological positions. They address the complexities of seemingly conflicting or overlapping concepts, principles and terminology and present this in a logical, coherent manner mapped using comparison tables.
This wonderful, down-to-earth book digs into the personal experiences of supervisors with their postgraduate students conducting their research in the fields of business and executive coaching. Having said that, the priciples of the various research methods are so well presented in a practical way that the text will have appeal and application beyond the contextual boundaries described.
