Abstract

In a grounded theory study valuable data can be gathered by observing research participants in natural settings. Field notes and memos are central to this method of data collection. Concurrent data collection and analysis of this data leads to theoretical sampling and decision-making about how best to collect further data in the study. Using observation as an initial method of data collection method in grounded theory studies can shape and sharpen subsequent focus groups and individual interviews.
