Presented by: Professor Dan Remenyi

The analysis of qualitative data is a major challenge for many academic researchers. It is challenging to find guidance towards rigor qualitative data analysis. Usually faced with a substantial amount of text it is often difficult to know exactly where to start and what sort of techniques to employ. In fact, the analysis of qualitative data is not as formidable or awesome a task as it is often made out to be. Much of the difficult experienced by many researchers lies in knowing how to produce a convincing answer to the research question. This will involve drawing together different types of data and interpreting and understanding what has been found out. The primary purpose of this webinar is to become aware of the most important approach to this task and to offer suggestions as to how to use these techniques to achieve beneficial results.
