Processing Qualitative Research Data With Tinderbox. I wrote a while back that I often use a piece of software for the Mac called Tinderbox to churn through messy, unstructured focus group data and see the meaning and inherent structure in a soup of qualitative data.

Processing Qualitative Research Data With Tinderbox

I was fortunate to be asked to present my method at a Tinderbox Weekend last November by Tinderbox auteur Mark Bernstein. It's a complicated process at the start, but once it's set up correctly you can zip through qualitative research data pretty quickly and develop structure in the process. Tinderbox is great for this because, unlike a traditional outliner, you don't have to impose that structure at the beginning of the process, and you don't have to find a single "box" to put information in. Qualitative data is messy, because people are messy--they don't all fit into single boxes either. Eastgate: Serious Hypertext. Weft QDA - a free, open-source tool for qualitative data analysis.

BrainStormWFO Compared to Its Competitors

It was one of the first programs that let users build a simple outline. After almost 30 years of savage competition, it’s still selling. That’s about as likely as a Triceratops hanging out on the African savanna in 2011. BrainStormWFO has survived due to several key design elements that no competitors offer, even after all this time. On this page you’ll see exactly what those elements are, and why they help you organize effectively. What Makes BrainStormWFO So Special? BrainStormWFO is a super-fast hybrid outliner.

Mind mapping vs. Venn diagrams

However, this process is limited because it only allows you to operate within the realm of the original general topic. But what if you wanted to do mind mapping where you are trying to establish the intersecting areas of multiple general topics (something similar to what a Venn diagram does)? Mind mapping software don’t seem to be equipped for that. Are there any tools that can do that? It would be nice to have a different type of visualisation. Posted by CRCMay 22, 2012 at 04:24 PM.
