Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to propose a qualitative research method for which the empirical material is drawn from the experience of a practitioner‐researcher. Design/methodology/approach – First, a review of other autobiographical methods is made to show that the proposed method offers something different. Subsequently, it briefly outlines the epistemological and theoretical anchors that guided the development of the proposed method. Then it follows the path and the peculiarities of this method. And finally a few guidelines are presented for the legitimization of the knowledge generated, illustrated by an example. Findings – The proposed method is aimed at experienced practitioners who are involved in a process of scientific research. Ideally, it is carried out with a co‐searcher. Originality/value – A new method of qualitative research to explore new avenues in management science.
