In this chapter, the authors provide an overview of different ways of measuring psychological contract breach and fulfilment, distinguishing between: 1) composite and global measures of breach and fulfilment; and 2) a differential or between-person and a dynamic or within-person approach to breach and fulfilment. Drawing on the idea of methodological fit—which holds that theory, measurements and their analysis methods should all be aligned—the authors discuss not only measures of psychological contract breach and fulfilment but also associated analytical methods. By discussing the strengths and limitations of each method, they hope that this chapter offers a useful guide for researchers in their search for an appropriate methodology to assess psychological contract breach and fulfilment.
