Abstract

GODOI, Christiane Kleinübing. Discussion group as research practice in organizational studies. Rev. adm. empres. [online]. 2015, vol.55, n.6, pp.632-644. ISSN 2178-938X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0034-759020150603.

The goal of this theoretical-methodological essay is to present and discuss the methodology of Discussion Group (DG) as a group practice in qualitative research, opening further possibilities to apply it in organizational studies. The essay is structured as follows: first, we present a warning about the misconception involving the practice of DG as a prescription; second, we describe DG and group discourse; then we differentiate DG and focus group; finally, we discuss the technical elements of DG. This essay contributes to present this methodology to researchers of organizational studies and to develop the place of group practices in social research.

Keywords : Discussion group; research techniques; group practices; qualitative research; methodology.
