Action researchers use their practice as a site for systematic inquiry, by progressively transforming problems into questions, using the questions to shape action, collecting data, analyzing that data, and then reflecting on the results to create theories that frame new questions and actions (Coghlan and Brannick, 2005). Action researchers seek to understand how their actions are viewed from multiple perspectives. This knowledge is gained through analysis of exchanges, interactions, and information. Through alignment of personal reflection with external evidence, the action researcher is able to make new predictions about actions that will lead to a desired state. In this tutorial we will focus on sense making strategies to use on the data that was collected in the previous cycle.
