Conducting Classic Grounded Theory for Business and Management Students

Conducting Classic Grounded Theory for Business and Management Students

November 2019 | 128 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Part of SAGE's Mastering Business Research Methods series, conceived and edited by Bill Lee, Mark N. K. Saunders and Vadake K. Narayanan and designed to support students by providing in-depth and practical guidance on using a chosen method of data collection or analysis.

This book is an invaluable guide to using GT effectively in business and management dissertations, and offers practical guidance and insight into how to successfully transcribe and analyse data using the GT approach in your own research project.
