The goal of this theoretical-methodological essay is to present and discuss the methodology of Discussion Group (DG) as a group practice in qualitative research, opening further possibilities to apply it in organizational studies. The essay is structured as follows: first, we present a warning about the misconception involving the practice of DG as a prescription; second, we describe DG and group discourse; then we differentiate DG and focus group; finally, we discuss the technical elements of DG. This essay contributes to present this methodology to researchers of organizational studies and to develop the place of group practices in social research.
