I’ve coded a lot of qualitative data, but always solo or with just one other person. For the first time in my short career, I’m helping lead a team (4-5 people) that will code data from nine one-hour interviews. I’ve found info on creating codes and a code book as a team, but very little on the actual coding process (how many coders per transcript, how much detail each coder goes into, etc.).
So far, for each transcript we’re thinking of having 1 primary (fully codes the transcript) and 1 secondary coder who reads through the primary coder’s work, taking note of anything they disagree with (non-codes, inaccuracies, etc.). Then, the two coders discuss disagreements and come to a consensus.
Have you led a team of coders before? What sort of process did you follow? And any resources or general tips?
