Interactive research

Research that brings members of a client organisation into direct contact with stakeholders such as customers, in order jointly to explore issues and develop solutions to organisational issues. This approach to research has become popular in recent years and stakeholders are increasingly seen as collaborative members of a process, rather than research subjects who are studied but kept in the dark about the task in hand.
