OPPENHEIM, C., and STENSON, J. and WILSON, R.M.S., 2003. Studies on Information as an Asset II: Repertory Grid. Journal of Information Science, 30(2), pp. 181-190
This article presents findings from five repertory grid interviews conducted in early 2001 to identify attributes of information as an asset. Repertory grid is a technique developed by George Kelly based on his theory of personal constructs. Personal construct theory (PCT) assumes that individuals are their own 'personal scientists' who mentally represent the world around them. The method was used to enable key senior executives in information-intensive UK organizations to identify attributes of information assets considered to be significant by them for their business. The findings are not intended to be representative, but give an insight into the thinking of these key executives and their approaches to managing information assets.
