How might I best conduct ethnographic research done solo or with stakeholders (without the support from another trained professional) so I capture the highest quantity and quality of information without distraction from multi-tasking so much?

Context: In the next few weeks I will be conducting contextual inquiries and tag-alongs/shadowing sessions in 2 hour sessions solo, and possibly with stakeholders some of the time too. Ideally I'd have one other practitioner along side me, but since that is not the case, what might make things more manageable and me more effective?

Does anyone know of any succinct and effective instructions or guides on the basics to quickly ramp up these stakeholders to participate in supporting ethnographic research? 
 Any suggestions or resources would be greatly appreciated.
