Action Research in the Workplace


Can you explain where and what I'm required to reflect on in the following action research project? And what should I concentrate on to demonstrate clarity of thought, maturity of thinking and so on? It details what I should cover in the action research findings but where and how should reflections come into it? And is it only business related, e.g. my thoughts on the different theoretical business models?

The action research project is to be conducted in the workplace which is a small software company.

Please advise me on this. Thank you!
