Qualitative Research Design

Qualities of Theory Dubin (1969) Thomas Tyinon (1982) Eisenhardt (1989) Meredith (1993) Wacker (1998)
Allow predictions.
Increase understanding/explanations
It is interesting (i.e.non-trivial)
Includes attributes, variables
Explain the interaction / relationship among variables and attributes
Do not include composite variables (i.e. undefined elements)
Domain where it is applied (i.e. Includes boundary criteria)
Uniqueness (contribution)
Application of the theory to other environments (i.e. generalisability)
Theory simplicity and parsimony^3
Logically coherent
Linking existing theory with theoretical novelty of the construct

Qualities of testing theory

Qualities of Theory Testing Eisen- hard! (1989) Kasanen et a4 (1993) Yin(1994) Easterby -Smith (1999) Kekale (2001) Voss (2002)
Provide evidence to answer the research questions/ support a proposed theory - Relevant samples - Provide sufficient evidence to substantiate the conclusions that have to be drawn
Show a proof of logic and mastery of research methodology process - Internal validity - Construct validity
Show practical functionality of the construct (proposed) theory
Gives a work reality
Provides precise information
Provides new insights

Criteria for the evaluation of qualitative research

Generic Criteria of Evaluation 'controls' TB TT TB
The construct allows predictions or increases understanding i
The construct is non-trivial
The construct includes attributes, variables, etc
The construct does not include undefined variables
Provides research boundary 'scope of the construct' v
Rigour of the research methodology process a) shows proof of logical research methodology design b) Internal validity c) Construct validity d) External validity e) Reliability
Contains evidence to support the construct a) Select relevant samples and cases b) Provide sufficient evidence to substantiate the conclusions that have been drawn
Contribution to knowledge
Contribution to practice a) practical relevance b) practical functionality
