Grounded in research and thoughtful reflection, David Coghlan’s fifth edition of Doing Action Research in Your Own Organization offers an accessible new structure, and conceptual illustrations provide highly useful guidance that is well-tailored to the student’s own learning journey.

A book that recognises and values the way people engaging in insider action research put their ‘heart and soul’ into the endeavour. It

Good book with good guidance and exercise; Provides good advice on action research.
This book helped me to design my research module and provide practical examples of action research. I really like the way the author structure the information in the book.
Mature and professional MBA students require to look at and explore their organisations with some sort of anthropological and ethnographic eyes. This book provides a simple, but not simplistic, approach to understanding and applying the value of action research in knowledge creation based on personal practice and experience. It is an excellent guide in discovering and using effectively action research in making sense of the work place and supporting internal change agents.
