From PhD-doing to PhD-done is not as from A to B. This research aims to improve the understanding of the complex relationship between doctoral research and the supervisory process. The research model developed utilises repertory-grids and discussion is presented in relation to the nature of factors contributing to successful completions. The paper is argumentative in nature and provides insights to a complex process which is largely untested. A supervisory model previously presented by the authors (Aranda-Mena & Gameson, 2004) is tested in two areas: (1) the research process and (2) personality factors. The research increases common understanding of what it takes to complete a PhD, and the supervisory challenges in such a long process. It is concluded that supervision is a key factor in completing a PhD, and in developing the intellectual, analytical and research skills expected of PhD graduates. The authors call for more research, both theoretical and, in particular, empirical, in this important area.
