Your project proposal will contain a Practical Framework section of 8–12 pages (not including the title page, table of contents, or reference list). Develop these sections according to the following guidelines:
Practical Framework: Explain how you will conduct action research. Include the following:
Identification of Grand Objective
Identification of First Sub-Objective/Diagnosis
How will you approach the problem within the confines of your organization?
Emphasis must be on how you will facilitate this phase as you employ appreciative inquiry/action research (AI/AR) values. (If you are not sure, hypothesize what you believe would be the best approach.)
Facilitation of the Reflection Phase
Identify the new knowledge created during the cycle (covering “What? So what? and Now what?”), and employ the values of AI/AR.
