Action Research as a Basis for Making Decisions

Action research is simply defined as researching on the implications or effect of an action that is planned to resolve a certain problem.
As such anyone who goes into research should be able to:
- Clearly identify the problem after scrutinizing the different symptoms leading to the non-attainment of objectives.
- After quantifying or qualifying and identifying the different possible alternatives, then decide as to what is the most probable solution.
- Act on the decision then start planning after which do the right things and do things right.
- Check or assess and evaluate the results after which again you must act to improve the system.

Action Research as a Bases for Making Decisions

Arnold Collado, I agreed pretty much with what you stated until I got to the act part where you state,"start planning after which do the right things and do things right."
I don't see actions as right or wrong in this process.
Sure one acts by moving forward on the plan and then re-evaluate to keep making it better. Like in science, it's all about the process of improving and discovering through trial and error, not right and wrong.
