Revisiting phenomenology: its potential for management research
Ehrich, Lisa C. (2005) Revisiting phenomenology: its potential for management research. In Challenges or organisations in global markets, British Academy of Management Conference, 13 - 15 September, 2005, Said Business School, Oxford University.
To date there is much disagreement about the meaning of phenomenology possibly because the term has been used so widely. For instance, phenomenology has been conceptualised as a philosophy, a research method and an overarching perspective from which all qualitative research is sourced. The aim of this paper is it endeavours to make phenomenology more accessible and in turn a more attractive research methodology to use in management related research. The paper begins by exploring some of the well-known versions of phenomenological philosophy emanating from its founding father, Edmund Husserl. It then explores phenomenology as a research approach. Here two well-known applications of phenomenology are compared and contrasted to show some of the different assumptions underpinning these approaches. The paper makes the claim that phenomenological research methodology, while relatively unused in management research, has much to offer.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
