Action research cycles

The project went through three action research cycles to produce its outcomes. The great strength of the action research model was its inherent flexibility that enabled adaptation of the project in response to ongoing evaluation that was achieved through reflective practice of the project team and the reference group at each project phase.

The three action research cycles were centred around:

    1. The development of a scoping document
    2. The development of distributed leadership martrices
    3. The development of an action self enabling reflective tool
