The potential disconnect between research and practice in software engineering (SE) means that the uptake of research outcomes has at times been limited. In this paper we seek to identify research approaches that are rigorous in terms of method but that are also relevant to software engineering practitioners. After considering the correspondence of several approaches to software systems research and practice we recommend a framework for applying grounded theory in SE research, as a means of delivering both robust and useful outcomes.
