Qualitative research projects often involve collaborative efforts of a research team, which may be a daunting challenge if you’re used to conducting research as an individual.

In this webinar we will share tools for how to manage NVivo projects among team members, track decisions, as well as compare and view coding across team members. See how NVivo can support your team to collaborate effectively together on a research project.
