Qualitative research in the organizational sciences has witnessed the rise of analytical templates: “systematic, simplified, and repeatable approaches to data collection, analysis, and interpretation that have become standardized and legitimized through enactment” (Köhler, Smith, and Bhakoo, 2021, p. 2). In this webcast, we will discuss the nature of templates and the challenges template use can create for novel and plausible theorizing. Participants will be provided with concrete alternatives to analyzing and reporting data that move beyond templates. The webcast is based on insights from papers published in the 2022 feature topic of Organizational Research Methods (ORM) on ‘Templates in Qualitative Research’ (issue 25.2).
