I have just begun the process of sorting 480+ constructs of teamwork and am
using the programme NUD.IST to categorise my constructs - it provides a
percentage count of the frequency of each construct pair and can also search
for key words etc. It is a qualitative analysis package produced by QSR, a
company linked with Latrobe University, Victoria, Australia - however I know
it is commercially available world wide, as I used it at Oxford Brookes
University for my MA several years ago...
