Abstract

This paper describes in candour, the journey of a novice researcher in deciding the most appropriate methodological approach to be applied in his doctoral research. After extensive reading on various research methodologies, he finally decides that grounded theory is the most useful approach in providing insights into the phenomenon being investigated. However, he found that he cannot wholly apply the grounded theory approach in the research. This embarks him on a valuable journey in finding creative possibilities and solutions where he critically analyses the practicality of the approach. The narrative reflection shared in this paper may benefit other novice researchers in the sense that it helps them to realize that their decisions on research design are inextricably linked with individual passions, justifications and values.
