Field Study and Field Experiment book
The field study method and its variation, the field experiment, along with the laboratory and questionnaire survey methods, are the oldest and most classic means of studying organizations. The field study method is used to gather information on organizational or work-system functioning through systematic direct observation. This information is most often used to identify possible causal relationships between work-system variables and to identify problems with organizational functioning.
