Grounded theory is a method in qualitative research. Development of grounded theory is increasingly popular with medicine, nursing and health science researchers. It is a multifaceted and is in due course cultured during put into practice rather than direction but there are problems with how the methodology is being used. It is the generation of emergent theory from empirical data i.e., to build up a set of ideas and are incorporated and hypotheses in an incorporated theory that describes actions in any substantive area. A sequential step in the process of a grounded theory is explored in this paper. The collected data of real life situations will be analyzed and new theory will be generated relevant to the research problem. The foundation of grounded theory generation is establishment data as it is from real life situation, not from suggestions, deductions, injustice inference, prejudice, or the association of ideas. Coding is done and new data will be collected continuously till the researcher feels that theoretical saturation has been reached. Various data collection methods may be used to collect the data. Interview is the common technique used in grounded theory whereas participant observation, service log reports or help desk emails also used. Sequential way is used to develop different concepts that clarify psychosocial feelings of an individual experienced same type of the phenomenon under investigation. Researcher move towards query and theory come out with careful analysis.
