1.3.1. Ch1. Doing Grounded Theory:Issues and Discussions General Properties of Grounded theories not findings systematic generation of theory from data acquired by a rigorous research method integrated set of conceptual hypotheses Minus Mentoring Phyllis Stern Researchers working where there is no one to train them in the method. There are ways of working around this, online, email, physical workshops Not always a bad thing and some are more suited to this type of independence All is Data No particular type of data is sanctified, objective or valid preconceiving what data will be used for a study severely restricts the generative aspect of the study and consequently the theory. Four types of Data: from factual descriptions to airy ungrounded conceptualizations. analysis of secondary can be productive Self-interveiw Collaboration GT ideally suited for collaboration Collaborators should write separately and then re-write each other's work Conflicts during collaboration can yield other properties of the categories Qualitative and Quantitative data Once the theory explains what is going on other research may be done to test hypotheses. Even in strictly quantitative research there qualitative components in the interpretation Grounded Theory fits with a natural human inclination to figure out hypotheses as to what is going on in our lives Grounded theory is a package "Doing" can be used as a manual A revolving step p process Nothing left to chance continually empowers the researcher conceptually and perceptually For all it's rigor GT is designed to bring out the researcher's autonomy, discovery-a personal recipe Learning GT takes about a year- delayed action curve-look for a eureka moment 5 "S"s= susequent, sequential, simultaneous, serendipitous and scheduled The product legitimizes the process

1.3.7. Ch. 7 Taping Don't do it Taping undermines the power of GT to delimit the research as quickly as possible in the process. Forestalls theoretical sampling Slows progress and leads to data doubts Interferes with creativity and skill development Instead develop the necessary skills to take field notes. GT uses incidents in field notes as illustrations of categories and their properties rather than as evidence of findings.

1.3.8. Ch. 8 The Problem The problem (main concern) is the prime organizational feature of a GT The main concern of participants and how they continually resolve their problem explains most of their behavior Strategies use in the resolution of main concern leads to core category

8.2. Dr. Russell Ackoff video re- systems thinking. Uses synthesis rather than analysis. Three steps to synthesis contrasted with analysis

8.2.1. The first step of analysis is taking a system apart. The first step of synthesis is asking "what is this system a part of?" If you want to understand an automobile you have to understand that it is a part of the transportation system. If you take a system apart it looses its functionality and there by you lose the ability to explain it. The motor is necessary but not sufficient. When you remove it from the car it just sits there.

8.2.2. The second step of analysis is to try to explain the behavior of the parts taken separately. The second step of synthesis is to try to explain the behavior of the larger containing system.

8.2.3. Third step of synthesis is to aggregate an understanding of the parts into an understanding of the whole. In the third step of synthesis you dis-aggregate the understanding of the containing whole by identifying the role or function of what it is you are trying to explain.
