Modelling Shared Reality: avoiding unintended influence in qualitative research
Modelling Shared Reality is a new qualitative research methodology which is rooted in Clean Language & Symbolic Modelling. It minimizes undesired influence of the researcher during all stages of the research: design, interviews, analysis and reporting. The methodology is action oriented: both the process and the results function as a catalyst for action, behavioural and organizational change.
