          Abstract

          ABSTRACT Purpose: This article aims to explore how the grounded theory (GT) was used in empirical research in the area of Organizational Studies. GT is a research strategy widely used in Business Administration studies both nationally and internationally. However, studies have little to do with how this research strategy is applied in practice and how researchers deal with difficulties that arise during the research process. Originality/value: This article presents how methodological issues not provided for in the research design proposed by the GT were overcome during the data collection and analysis phases. Design/methodology/approach: The article is based on research that aimed to understand the aging of executive women. In this article, the main codes, categories, and subcategories that emerged during the develop ment of the field research were exposed. In addition, we present the pro gress of theoretical sampling and the use of specific GT techniques, such as the flip-flop technique and the progress of the research question. Findings: As a practical implication, the article contributes to researchers who intend to use the GT, insofar they can take the step by step of using the method, as well as anticipating possible difficulties to be faced in the design of the research.

          RESUMO Objetivo: Este artigo tem como objetivo explorar como a grounded theory (GT) foi utilizada em uma pesquisa empírica na área de Estudos Organizacionais. A GT é uma estratégia de pesquisa amplamente utilizada nos estudos de Administração de Empresas, tanto nacional quanto internacionalmente. No entanto, os estudos pouco abordam como essa estratégia de pesquisa é aplicada na prática e como os pesquisadores tratam as dificuldades que surgem ao longo do processo de pesquisa. Originalidade/valor: Este artigo apresenta como questões metodológicas não previstas no desenho de pesquisa proposto pela GT foram superadas ao longo das fases de coleta e análise de dados. Design/metodologia/abordagem: O artigo tem como base uma pesquisa realizada que pretendia compreender o envelhecimento de mulheres executivas. Neste artigo, constam os principais códigos, as categorias e subcategorias que surgiram ao longo do desenvolvimento da pesquisa de campo. Além disso, apresentamos o progresso da amostragem teórica e o uso de técnicas específicas da GT, como a técnica flip-flop e o progresso da pergunta de pesquisa. Resultados: Como implicação prática, o artigo contribui com pesquisadores que pretendem utilizar a GT, na medida em que poderão ter o passo a passo da utilização do método, bem como antecipar possíveis dificuldades a serem enfrentadas no desenho da pesquisa.
