I’ve used Hierarchical Card Sorting quite a bit, first time was when I’d planned to use MSC but the story’s hadn’t been documented in a way that enabled them to be used for MSC. It was great – rescued a potential evaluation mess. It enabled us to do the participatory evaluation, convert several roads engineers who thought qualitative evaluation was a waste of time, reintegrate footpaths into the design (they had been removed as seen as unnecessary and not part of road engineering).
I don’t go down to ½ cards per pile – my experience is 3 or 4 divisions is enough and after that I lose people and don’t get so much value.
I also use it when I am developing M&E capacity as it is easy to understand, do; collect and analyse data. So we can increase M&E awareness, knowledge and skills quickly using HCS.
Never had time to write it up as a paper ….
All the best
