Phenomenenography is a less known, but highly versatile qualitative research approach that can be used to study a huge range of phenomena, such as the use of digital technologies, innovation, competence, learning, and leadership. It can also be combined with several leading theoretical perspectives, such as practice and process theory and sensemaking. Drawing on his experience of conducting and publishing phenomenographic research in journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Organization Behaviour, Journal of International Business Studies and Journal of Management Studies, Jorgen will present some practical insights into how phenomenography can be used in Business and Management Research, and reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of this approach.
