„Shadowing as a method in management and strategic communication research. Fieldnotes from the shadows.” - ATTENTION: Room has changed. The Lecture will take place in D2.2.228 - 13.03.2023, 18:00
“The research talk relates the author’s own experiences in conducting a shadowing study with communication managers. The author’s doctoral dissertation was inspired by Henry Mintzberg’s famous work and combined a qualitative approach with a quantitative backbone. The talk will present some results, but the focus lies on weighing the pros and cons of the approach, and a problematization of shadowing as a method.”
