Developing a Grounded Communication Theory: An Approach to Interpersonal Behavior in an Organization.
Browning, Larry D.
This research project focused on the development of communication theory from qualitative data gathered through unstructured methods in a natural setting. The project emphasized the search for and discovery of communication variables by using data collection methods (unstructured interviews and nonparticipant observation) that provided detailed descriptions of behaviors and attitudes on how individuals communicate interpersonally in an organization setting and what variables influence the ways individuals communicate. A number of hypotheses were tested and the results are contained in the conclusion of this study. (RB)
