Recently we had the opportunity to formulate and manage a research project in which a small group examined and analyzed its own experience. It was a new venture for us and we found little in the way of existing models or examples in methodological texts to guide us. Yet, groups, whether committees, or project teams, or departments of corporations, are frequently directed to review their work and identify their strengths and weaknesses. We wondered, could such a process be done with substantial rigor, enough so that it would qualify as self-research? If so, what would that process look like, and in what situations would it be useful?
