Phenomenology as a method for exploring management practice
Anosike, Paschal, Ehrich, Lisa C., & Ahmed, Pervaiz (2012) Phenomenology as a method for exploring management practice. International Journal of Management Practice (IJMP), 5(3), pp. 205-224.
Phenomenology is a term that has been described as a philosophy, a research paradigm, a methodology, and equated with qualitative research. In this paper first we clarify phenomenology by tracing its movement both as a philosophy and as a research method. Next we make a case for the use of phenomenology in empirical investigations of management phenomena. The paper discusses a selection of central concepts pertaining to phenomenology as a scientific research method, which include description, phenomenological reduction and free imaginative variation. In particular, the paper elucidates the efficacy of Giorgi’s descriptive phenomenological research praxis as a qualitative research method and how its utility can be applied in creating a deeper and richer understanding of management practice.
