The analysis of 78 related articles indicates that the process of applying phenomenological method for study of entrepreneurs is growing. In response to the question of how phenomenology is applied, the results of the reviewed articles were described in seven sections, including the defining of subject, the selection of phenomenological procedure, the selection of participants and sampling, data collection, Analysis, validation, and presentation. This phenomenological method for study of engineer-entrepreneurs is illustrated through a worked example of competency for being engineer-entrepreneur.
