The current orthodoxy is that 'knowledge' is the most powerful resource for organisational success. So how can managers develop the appropriate knowledge base to make their organisations grow? The answer lies in action research. Action research is increasingly perceived and used as a powerful methodology to promote professional awareness and development. However, there are very few texts that demonstrate how this can be utilised to promote management and organisational improvement or that emphasise the reflective nature of improving professionalism. Action Research in Organisations fills this gap. Aimed at both practising managers and university students alike, key features of this title include:
* the location of management and organisational theory within a framework * examination of the principles and practice of action research
* real-world examples and case studies of people attempting to improve their own situations through action research.

    As always with Jean McNiff and Jack Whitehead, this is tremendously insightful and practical. Although the organisations in the book are mostly schools, universities or other groups made up of teachers or teacher-related occupations, there is nothing here that could not be used for doing action research in any type of organisation. What is perhaps extraordinary useful in this book as compared with the numerous other books written by McNiff and Whitehead is the attempt to use Chomsky's political perspectives and theories as a basis for action theory.
