Action Research: An Introduction
In the morning sessions we will explore the context within which researchers choose to apply an action research approach to research into issues in IEM (Industrial Engineering and Management) and OM (Operations Management). This discussion builds on the paper by Formentini et al. (2019).
We then begin to outline theory and practice of action research, and the process of action enquiry, building on the seminal article by Coughlan and Coghlan (2022).
In the afternoon, we detail the key steps in the process of action research with a view to generating actionable knowledge and publishable output. We will discuss in groups papers published in different international journals using Action Research.
