Using ethnographic methods to carry out human factors research in software engineering

J. S. Karn, A. J. Cowling
2006 Behavior Research Methods  
The aim of this research was to uncover the effects of the interplay of different personality types, as measured by a test based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), on the workings of an SE team  ...  This article describes how ethnographic methods were used to observe and analyze student teams working on software engineering (SE) projects.  ...  One of the key strengths of this method is that it allows one to gain an "inside" account of the lives of people under observation.  ...
