This chapter explores the implications of systematic action research in policy-making community. It argues that systematic action research is a process that could be embedded in the public sphere, offering solutions to endemic social and organisational problems. This chapter highlights the importance of the following: 1) building emergence into organisational decision-making processes; 2) generating a different sort of evidence; 3) rethinking dissemination and roll-out; 4) re-assessing investment risk; 5) replacing the principle of consistency with the idea of appropriate action; 6) enabling sustainable interventions; and 7) re-conceptualising participation.

Keywords:   implications, systematic action research, policy-making community, public sphere, organisational decision-making processes, investment risk, sustainable interventions, re-conceptualising participation
