Description

Get involved in doing the job yourself, discovering what it is like hands-on. Gain a visceral sense of how things happen, including the physical, cognitive and emotional aspects of the job.

As necessary, you may need to have appropriate training. You may also get a junior or supporting role where significant expertise is required, so you can at least observe the experts in the field.

Also pay attention as appropriate to the sociology of the job. How do people relate to one another? What are the power rules within the group? How do people relate to outsiders?

Discussion

Participation is particularly useful for understanding jobs that have a high emotional or cognitive content that cannot be measured very well by other means.

In participation, a careful decision is whether or not to tell the other people on the job about your purpose. Telling them may well change their behavior and hence distort your experience and perception. Not telling them may be deceitful and cross ethical boundaries.
