Sure; it would be crazy to shift praradigms on an investigation that's
half-way through (I enjoyed the detailked description you gave a couple
of days ago, BTW). In due coruse, though I'd be evry inetrested in your
own, and anyone else's, reactiosn to the _Management Learning_ special
issue on Action Research. It's such a dominant approach in management
development work these days, and so it would be very interesting to hear
reactions from people not wuite so close to it.

Kind regards,
