Abstract and Keywords

Phenomenology is widely used in management studies, notably in organizational analysis, and the core disciplines of anthropology, sociology, history, and psychology, among many others. This article endeavours to provide a coherent account of phenomenology, discussing its central concerns and concepts, making some contrasts within the phenomenology movement, and providing a brief discussion of the phenomenological method. It shows the value of the phenomenological approach and method by doing a phenomenological analysis of the phenomenon ‘screen’ and presenting a critical assessment of it. The article includes some existing work in phenomenology that may serve as examples of how phenomenology may be used to inform future research. This article draws on literature on the phenomenological movement and its relevance to the information system field.

Keywords: phenomenology, organizational analysis, phenomenological approach, future research, information system
