Action Research


Definition: Action Research is a team-based interactive participatory reflective inquiry process and organizational development method coined by Kurt Lewin to find causes for and progressively solve organizational problems.
It is researching on the implications or effect of an action that is planned to resolve a certain problem.
Lewin defined AR as “a comparative research on the conditions and effects of various forms of social action and research leading to social action” that uses “a spiral of steps, each of which is composed of a circle of planning, action and fact-finding about the result of the action”.
