Book Description:

This book addresses action research (AR), one of the principal research methodologies for academia-industry research collaborations. It elaborates on how to find suitable research activities and distinguish them from non-significant ones. Further, it details how to glean lessons from the research results, whether positive or negative. Lastly, it shows how companies can evolve and build talent while expanding their product portfolio. The book’s structure is based on that of AR projects; it sequentially covers and discusses each phase of the project. Each chapter shares new insights into AR and gives the reader a better understanding of how to apply it. In addition, each chapter includes several practical use cases or examples. The chapters cover the entire software lifecycle, from problem diagnosis through the project (or action) planning and execution to documenting and disseminating results, including validity assessments for AR studies. This book aims to help everyone interested in industry-academia collaborations conduct joint research. It is for students of software engineering who need to learn how to set up an evaluation, run a project, and document the results. It is for all academics who aren’t afraid to step out of their comfort zone and enter the industry. It is for industrial researchers who know that they want to do more than just develop software blindly. And finally, it is for stakeholders who wish to learn how to manage industrial research projects and how to set up guidelines for their roles and expectations.
