Complete the following task from Saunders et al. (2016):
Which strategies to help to gain access are
likely to apply to the following scenarios:
- An ‘external’ researcher seeking direct access to managers who will be the research participants;
- An ‘external’ researcher seeking access through an organisational gatekeeper/broker to their intended participants or respondents;
- An internal researcher planning to undertake a research project within their employing organisation? (p. 264).
What strategy will you need to gain access within the context of your own research?
