I am working on a framework I'm calling "Impact-Driven Inquiry" or IDI for short. I just did a Google search on the term and nothing came up directly - so I'm claiming it in this post!
I see IDI very much related to DBR. I will also draw on Aristotle's constructs of phronesis and techne as alternatives to episteme, the usual way of knowing that academic research relies on. A book by Bent Flyvbjerg presents pronesis as a means of making social science research more successful:
Flyvbjerg, B. (2001). Making social science matter: Why social inquiry fails and how it can succeed again (S. Sampson, Trans.). New York: Cambridge University Press.I'm excited about this - hence this quick post. I'll put up something more formal soon, when I have developed the construct more fully.
