This book covers the background, process, and tools needed to introduce and guide students through to a successful action research (AR) project. Included are how to initiate, plan, and complete AR within all types of organizations in business, nonprofit, and public administration. Graphic organizers and a modular sequence of topics help students manage the steps involved in AR practice. A protocol for weekly report writing, informed consent documentation, and clear guidelines for final analyses and report writing give graduate students the efficient format they need. This book teaches theory by interweaving discussion of the major content areas and stories of student success with the concepts that impact practice.

Working with People and Groups

Working with people and groups

Wicks and colleagues (2008) point to the importance of a “web of relationships, events, influences, role models and experiences which underpins action researcher's practice (and which has done so over time)” (p. 15). This chapter is meant as a reference throughout the AR or PAR process for issues relating to working with people and is written in the hopes that you will be able to use these premises to build a positive web and that through it you will have increased likelihood of sustainable results. The messages contained herein will hold true whether you are an action researcher working independently, as part of a team, or in a PAR group.
