Overview

Published in cooperation with the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences and its journal Organization Science How do organizations change, develop, grow, or terminate over time? In this volume, editors George P. Huber and Andrew H. Van de Ven focus on longitudinal field research methods for studying organizational change--methods that are fundamental to understanding the dynamics of organizational life and to developing and testing theories of organizational adaptation, change, innovation, and redesign. The chapters focus on the design and conduct of longitudinal research in the field and deal with methods to analyze and interpret process patterns in longitudinal data. The authors, all renowned organizational researchers, emphasize a wide range of methodological issues involved in longitudinal field research, including ethnographic methods, longitudinal and comparative case studies, event history analysis, and real-time tracking of events. They also address various procedures that can be used to tabulate, code, and interpret both quantitative and qualitative data collected in the field. For any scholar or researcher in organization studies, Longitudinal Field Research Methods is an essential resource.
