This small volume is intended as a convenient and user-friendly introductory

guide to the various procedures involved in eliciting and analysing repertory

grids. It isn’t an academic treatise but a guidebook which provides you with

instructions on

. how to elicit grids

. how to analyse them to an accepted and rigorous standard.

It isn’t a book about the theoretical background, personal construct theory

(PCT), since there are many of those: the bare bones of the theory are outlined,

just for reference, in Appendix 6. It isn’t an academic treatment of repertory

grid technique, with a comprehensive review of the research on grids and their

use. That job is done by its companion volume, Fransella et al. (2004): see

below. It is a practical workbook and guide, using which you can teach

yourself how to elicit and analyse repertory grids. By the time you finish it,

going through all the examples and exercises, you will be proficient in grid

technique. Think of it as an introduction which teaches you the basics, and

refers you to more advanced information as required.
