The repertory grid technique: Its place in empirical software engineering research

  title={The repertory grid technique: Its place in empirical software engineering research},
  author={Helen M. Edwards and Sharon McDonald and S. Michelle Young},
  journal={Information & Software Technology},
Personal construct theory (applied via the repertory grid technique) supports interpretivist research in a structured manner and, as such, has relevance for researchers conducting studies focused on the human and organisational aspects of software engineering. Personal construct theory (which underpins the repertory grid technique) is introduced, and the technique and its administration is discussed. Research studies from the literature are reviewed to provide illustrative examples of its… CONTINUE READING
