Rooke, John, Seymour, David, Koskela, Lauri, Bertelsen, Sven, Owen, Robert and Cleary, Martin (2008) Enquiry Pull Research: An Ethnomethodological Approach to Lean Construction Research or a Lean Approach to Ethnomethodological Research. In: 16th Annual Conference of the International Group for Lean Construction (IGLC-16), 16-18th July 2008, Manchester. (Unpublished)

This paper assembles some principals from three strands of thought: lean theory; ethnomethodology; and Wittgensteinian philosophy. These are considered with a view to their impact on research design and used here as a basis for an initial exploration of a candidate research topic, in order to illustrate this impact. Principles of Lean Theory are considered, along with those from Wittgensteinian social enquiry and Ethnomethodology, in order to suggest a strategy for Lean Research. These are applied to the intial consideration of a candidate research topic, in order to illustrate the argument.
