Probing the New Analytical Perspective

  • Charlotte Marie Bisgaard Klemmensen


The outline for a person-centered praxeology takes its point of departure in the methodological framing of zooming in and zooming out (Nicolini in Organ Stud 30:1391–1418, 2009), as discussed in Chapter  5. The zooming-in part combines the approaches of integrational linguistics and ethnomethodology and conversation analysis methodologically. Zooming in traces significant trajectories across excerpts, whereas zooming out describes larger frames of practices. Building upon the discussion from previous chapters, the pros and cons of combining analytical concepts are discussed. The analytical framework in this chapter is presented along with video data. Frames of practices are unfolded in order to establish a base on which to inform professional practice about their social consequences. An abductive element of the analytical strategy is given attention and scrutinized.
