Análise fenomenológica interpretativa nas pesquisas em administração: da teoria à aplicação metodológica




Análise Fenomenológica Interpretativa, AFI, Pesquisa Qualitativa, Administração


Este estudo tem como objetivo analisar a aplicação da Análise Fenomenológica Interpretativa (AFI) em pesquisas de Administração e suas contribuições. Realizou-se uma revisão de literatura tipo Síntese narrativa textual baseada em 52 artigos empíricos da área, publicados entre 2013 e 2022, obtidos da base Scopus com filtro Business, Management and Accounting. Os resultados indicam que a AFI fortalece a pesquisa qualitativa em Administração, revelando percepções, significados, aspectos emocionais, cognitivos e afetivos em fenômenos organizacionais a partir da perspectiva dos envolvidos, como empreendedores, líderes, trabalhadores, mulheres, minorias e outros. A análise das experiências proporciona discussões relevantes que sustentam teorias emergentes ou aprofundam a compreensão de conceitos em teorias estabelecidas, contribuindo para aprimorar práticas, processos, políticas e diretrizes organizacionais. Este estudo oferece ainda uma síntese completa sobre a aplicação da AFI na Administração, enriquecendo a compreensão metodológica na área.
