The SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Business and Management Research Methods provides a state-of–the art overview of qualitative research methods in the business and management field. Bringing together a team of leading international researchers, the chapters offer a comprehensive overview of the history and traditions that underpin qualitative research in the field. The chapters in this volume have been arranged into four thematic parts:
Part One explores the influential traditions underpinning qualitative research, such as positivism, interpretivism, pragmatism, constructionism and beyond.
Part Two looks at research designs, covering ethnography, field research, action research, case studies, process and practice methodologies.
Part Three focusses on the researcher: examining issues such as positionality, reflexivity, ethics, gender and intersectionality.
Part Four examines challenges relating to research design, access and departure, choosing participants and more.
