Workshop: Using Fuzzy Sets in Mixed Methods Research – Adelaide: 10 November 2017

Mixed methods research is an emerging methodological movement and in the last ten years has gained significant momentum. Fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis (Fs/QCA) is also gaining popularity in management fields and is increasingly used in top management journals.

Two sessions to choose from – morning or afternoon – and registration is free, but don’t delay!


The objective of the Mixed Methods Research SIG is to facilitate discussion and dissemination of the latest theoretical, practical and methodological thinking, issues and frameworks associated with this emerging methodological movement as it pertains to business and management research.  The SIG will aim to build capacity and foster collaborations for high quality mixed methods research and form a community of practice across business and management disciplines of those interested in/utilising mixed methods.

Higher degree research students, early career researchers, and established researchers will be encouraged to engage in the SIG. The SIG will also build capacity for those ANZAM members who may have the following roles: journal or conference editors/reviewers, HDR supervisors, teaching research methods, and PhD thesis or professional doctorate portfolio examination.  It is anticipated that the SIG will conduct master classes in aspects of mixed methods research and begin to form networks with similar SIGs internationally.
