As an example, the chapter focuses on the use of one specific program, NVivo, in qualitative analysis. After discussing the general issues of software choice and the pros and cons of its use, thechapter describes how to set up a project and decide on the cases to be used in the analysis. Coding the data is a key activity, and how codes are created, organised and developed is discussed. The next analytic stage is using the coded data to develop ideas and theories and the chapter explains how to use the software to do this.
