Phenomenenography is a less known, but highly versatile qualitative research approach that can be used to study a huge range of phenomena, such as the use of digital technologies, innovation, competence, learning, and leadership. It can also be combined with several leading theoretical perspectives, such as practice and process theory and sensemaking. Drawing on his experience of conducting and publishing phenomenographic research in journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Organization Behaviour, Journal of International Business Studies and Journal of Management Studies, Jorgen will present some practical insights into how phenomenography can be used in Business and Management Research, and reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of this approach.

Jörgen Sandberg is Professor in Management and Organization in the UQ Business School, Australia, and Distinguished Research Environment Professor in Organization Studies at Warwick Business School, UK. He is Co-Lead of Practice and Process Studies, a multidisciplinary research group within UQ Business School. His main research interests include competence and learning in organizations; practice and process theory; theory development; philosophy of science; and research methodology. He is currently doing research on knowing in professional practice, sensemaking in organizations, and the development of more novel and impactful theories within organization studies.
