- ItemApplying Constant Comparative Method with Multiple Investigators and Inter-Coder Reliability(NSUWorks, 2016) Olson, Joel; McAllister, Chad; Grinnell, Lynn D.; Gehrke Walters, Kimberly; Appunn, FrankBuilding on practice, action research, and theory, the purpose of this paper is to present a 10-step method for applying the Constant Comparative Method (CCM) of grounded theory when multiple researchers perform data analysis and meaning making. CCM is a core qualitative analysis approach for grounded theory research. Literature suggests approaches for increasing the credibility of CCM using multiple researchers and inter-coder reliability (ICR), but documentation of methods for collaboration on CCM data analysis is sparse. The context for developing the10-step CCM approach was a qualitative study conducted to understand the impact of webcams on a virtual team. To develop a methodology for the study, the researchers reviewed grounded theory literature to synthesize an approach for conducting CCM with multiple researchers. Applying action research, an integration of literature and practical experience conducting the qualitative study resulted in a model for using CCM with multiple researchers performing data analysis. The method presented in this paper provides practical guidance for applying CCM collaboratively and shares the researchers’ perspectives on the value of ICR.
- ItemApplying Critical Biography Perspective to the Work of Frank Gilbreth(Emerald Publishing Limited, 2016) Gibson, Jane Whitney; Deem, Jack; Einstein, Jacqueline; Humphreys, JohnPurpose – The purpose of this study is to examine the life and work of Frank Gilbreth using a critical biographical approach to draw connections between his life experiences and the major contributions he made to management history. Design/methodology/approach – The research design is critical biography. First, a biography is provided that reveals critical incidents from his childhood, his early career before marriage, his life after his marriage and his key personality traits. Gilbreth’s major contributions to management thought are then considered in context of his biography. Findings – Although Frank Gilbreth is recalled for his contributions to management history through his work in advancing efficiency through motion studies, he should likewise be credited for his foresight of management theories related to the human element in organizations. The major influences on Gilbreth’s career include Lillian Gilbreth and Frederick Taylor. Research limitations/implications – A limitation of critical biography is that researchers cannot address causality but, rather, are focused on drawing connections between life experiences and significant accomplishments. Originality/value – Critical biography can illuminate theory and practice by providing greater clarity by examining concepts in depth and in context. The authors situate Frank Gilbreth’s work in the context of his lived experiences.

- ItemCorporate preparation for the cross-cultural adaptation experience of the accompanying expatriate spouse(Jordan Whitney Enterprises, Inc., 2015) Teague, JenniferScholars have long concurred that the cross-cultural adaptation experience of an expatriate employee will have a significant impact on the overall success or failure of an international assignment. While there has been discussion in the literature of the impact of the cultural adaptation of the accompanying expatriate spouse on the assignment success, little extant literature has systematically applied existing adaptation theory to consider how companies can provide support programs to aid in this journey of spousal cultural adaptation. In this paper, the author argues through the application of Social Learning Theory that the sponsoring organization can help prepare the accompanying expatriate spouse with targeted programs that aid in anticipatory cultural adjustments.
