Summary

This document contains five papers from a symposium on advances in qualitative research in human resource development (HRD). "Case Study and Its Virtuoso Possibilities" (Verna J. Willis) asserts that the case study method is particularly well suited for research in HRD because its creative and investigative possibilities have not yet been limited by exclusionary criteria and because it allows researchers to combine traditions of inquiry from the arts and sciences with newer social science-based investigative methods. In "The Promise of Narrative Research in HRD" (Ann K. Brooks), narrative analysis is described as a useful hermeneutic strategy for analyzing data on organizational change or learning. "HRD Theory Building through Qualitative Research" (Carol D. Hansen) argues that, in a field as young as HRD, the primary role of qualitative research should be to generate sorely needed new doctrine and that the principles of grounded theory should be used in research in HRD. "Updating the Critical Incident Technique after Forty-Four Years" (Andrea D. Ellinger, Karen E. Watkins) examines changes in the Critical Incident Technique since it was first articulated by Flanagan in 1954 and offers a constructivist approach as a way of updating the technique. "A Feminist Approach to HRD Research" (Laura L. Bierema) asks HRD researchers to challenge assumptions and promote alternative research designs by applying a feminist perspective. (MN)
