Most importantly, we make sure you're comfortable with the analyses, guide you through the process, and make sure you can defend it.
Qualitative Data Analysis: At the end of a qualitative data analysis, you need to see the big picture. Assistance in conducting case study, phenomenological, or grounded theory research. Help can include transcribing interviews, coding data, selecting themes, and assessing the reliability of the themes. Having a second eye on thematizing data is recommended.
