The steps of the research process in workplace, government, institutional, and community settings are presented through case studies that demonstrate the main principles and methods of applied research in this practical guide. Through six different research projects, the authors show how context, research purpose, design, and method are intertwined. These accounts illustrate the inevitable challenges, compromises, and tensions of real-life research, equipping researchers to systematically analyze situations, customize research projects to specific contexts, and to monitor and evaluate research projects, programs, and interventions.
