Action Research Takes Place in a COMMUNITY

In addition to what others have offered, action research involves identifying a problem within a community and mobilizing the community to collectively discuss the causes and to collectively seek solutions to address the problem.
In action research, both the researcher and the programme beneficiaries or target group are both learners and researchers. Action that leads to improvement follows the research. Data collection and analyses are collectively done.

The Organization is a Community

I agree, but the concept of the community should include the formal organization, such as IBM or Microsoft. The US Army considers itself a community of communities and it has increasingly engaged itself in that manner since the reforms of the 1970s.
In addition, the action planning format and protocol the military uses at the squad level up to Secretary of the Army is Action Research. It is useful to remember that Kurt Lewin was a combat vet on the German side during WWI and, as vet myself, I recognized the pattern of inquiry and action in Lewin's model as a general principle.
