The authors provide an easy-to-follow, hands-on guide to every aspect of conducting an action research project and have added in the Third Edition:
- more on politics and ethics to help researchers negotiate gaining access and permission, and building and maintaining support from peers and relevant subsystems within an organization
- more on writing an action research dissertation, and treatment of sensitive issues such as: giving feedback to one’s superiors and peers, disseminating the research to the wider community, and handling interpretations or outcomes which may be perceived negatively by the organization involved.
- more case examples and reflective exercises taken from a wide variety of organizational settings to aid students and researchers whatever their background discipline.
