If you are going to be carrying out research interviews it is well worth a read. Click here to go to the article.
The article suggests that you should choose your interview type wisely and I would like to add that it is also important to consider budget, both in terms of time and money.
As the article suggests, unstructured interviews will normally be longer than the structured and semi-structured types of interviews. However, I would suggest that it is wise to consider the following important questions for all types of interviews:
- If you are planning to transcribe the interviews yourself will you have sufficient time in order to complete the transcription?
- If you are planning to outsource the interview transcription to a professional transcription services company have you got enough money in your budget to cover the cost?
