The Role of Background Data in the Improvement Project

Write a paper explaining the ways an action researcher uses qualitative and quantitative background information to arrive at a decision regarding a project to improve an organizational process.

Use one of the items from this unit's second study as the focus of your project. In the introduction of your paper, include some context about the project you are examining. Projects you may choose from include:

  • Strategy action projects of higher education institutions on the Higher Learning Commission Web site (in the Resources).
  • Projects described in your Appreciative Inquiry: A Positive Revolution in Change text.
  • The Harlem Children's Zone case study.

In your paper, address the following questions specifically about one of the projects:

  • What does the desired future look like?
  • What are several alternatives to improving the process?
  • What are the likely risks, unintended consequences, and trade-offs of different alternatives?
  • What is the best course of action?
