Abstract

Action research (AR) has been used in many social science fields as a practical problem-solving method. What makes this paradigm unique and viable is that it allows research and practice to co-exist and co-work simultaneously in achieving organizational goals. The implementation of the AR paradigm in the field of training and development (T&D) is not common; thus, this paper provides methods and tools to utilize AR in T&D efforts and practice. In this paper, AR and T&D are overviewed, and the possible implications of AR for T&D, using the taxonomy of performance, are examined as an avenue for analysis.
