A comprehensive, accessible and informative text, this is ideal for any undergraduate or postgraduate research student – it clearly guides the reader through theory, implementation & the operational challenges of undertaking action research within your own organisation
'This fourth edition of Doing Action Research in Your Own Organization ismuch more than a research methodology textbook. It is a hybrid, combining theory with a practitioner’s reference, to provide a window into understanding the complexity, challenges and rewards of insider action research (AR)....The book speaks to researchers, post-graduate students, faculty and experienced practitioners because it provides a sustained and penetrating commentary on many of the prevailing phenomena and theories in the field of action learning and action science.'
The edition is an extremely valuable, authoritative and unique survey guide to insider action research. We could not have implemented our breakthrough curriculum in action research without the text.
Excellent text for work-based learners that will want to consider using their own organisation to undertake a research project.
With professional doctorates, research is usually within the student's own workplace or profession and a participatory approach is often adopted. There is useful information and advice here from both the 'action research; and 'your own organisation' perspective.
There is a growing trend for students to undertake research in organisations that they're familiar with, i.e. those that they're employed within. This book introduces these researchers to this type of research and allows them to explore whether or not such an approach is appropriate.
For part time students, studying their own organisation offers both great access and a great opportunity to learn - this book supports what can be a difficult and rewarding site for research.
Very informative. A good introduction to those new to action research.
Good introduction for those new to action research. Clear and conclse with useful exercises at the end of the chapters. I would recommend to both undergraduate and PG research students, in addition to members of the local action research network.
This is an engaging text on how to use action research at your own place of work. It should provide depth guidance to those wishing to study their own organization and make change happen.
An excellent and informative book that offers useful support to those doing action research in their own organisations.
This book presents a clear guide to Action Research in a very readable text.
Would recommend this book to masters students undertaking organisational research
Very strong text for students going through their placement and final consultancy projects.
An excellent comprehensive yet accessible text for any novice researcher embarking upon insider research.
Great for any professional practitioner contemplating research within their organisation.
Looks good but does not work with our assignments.
I think this book covers aspects of action research covered elsewhere in our research support and also I'm not sure how closely the aspects related to 'in your own organization' apply to our students as I had wondered they might.
A clear guide to the theory and application of action research. Particularly useful for my postgrad students who are able to carry out action research within the public health organisations in which they work.
This has proved to be a very useful book for undergraduate students researching their own practice in a range of workplaces, these include; schools, SMEs, large organisations and sole traders. Written in a very accessible style it provides a comprehensive overview of action research strategies and associated issues.
Great practical book.
