Abstract

Shadowing is a qualitative research technique that has seldom been used and rarely been discussed critically in the social science literature. This paper has pulled together all of the studies using shadowing as a research method and through reviewing these studies has developed a threefold classification of different modes of shadowing. This work provides a basis for a qualitative shadowing method to be defined, and its potential for a distinctive contribution to organisational research to be discussed, for the first time.
