From Grounded Theory to Design Practice

Makri, S. (2013). From Grounded Theory to Design Practice. Paper presented at the BCS-HCI 2013 Workshop, 9 Sep 2013, Brunel University, UK.


Grounded Theory methodology was not developed with the aim of informing design, but we have found it useful for doing so. Using Grounded Theory to inform design does, however, raise a number of issues (such as whether to ‘stop short’ of generating a theory, how to analyse data at a suitable level of abstraction and how to support revolutionary as well as evolutionary design). We discuss these issues, and potential solutions.
