Abstract

The Post-It® procedure: a meaningful and manageable interview method

The interview is one of the most important data collection instruments that used in qualitative research methods. However, doing an interview and using the data correctly is less straightforward than it may seem. Too often, especially while doing interpretative-descriptive research, during the phase of analysis important questions surface with regard to the validity of the instrument and the gathered data. At that stage, such questions sometimes prove difficult to resolve. The Post-It interview method is an alternative way of interviewing that tackles these questions by giving more structure to the interview beforehand. In addition, it offers the opportunity to do the so-called ‘member check’ during the interview itself. This leads to an interview procedure that is at the same time more meaningful to interviewer and interviewee, and more feasible to carry out. This article describes the proposed procedure and discusses some preliminary experiences in using the method.
