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

-- David Gaylard, Senior Lecturer in Social Work, Chichester University
'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.' -- Anne Graham Cagney * Action Learning: Research and Practice, 2015 *

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.

-- Benito L. Teehankee
