Abstract: Straipsnyje analizuojami tyrimo dalyvaujant metodologijos praktiniai ir teoriniai aspektai. Pirmojoje straipsnio dalyje aptariami veiklos tyrimo ir tyrimo dalyvaujant metodologiniai skirtumai, jų pagrindinės charakteristikos ir gerosios patirties pavyzdžiai iš pasaulinės socialinių mokslų praktikos. Analizuojant Lietuvos patirtį, aptariama Vytauto Didžiojo universiteto mokslininkų įgyta patirtis atliekant tyrimą dalyvaujant paslaugas seniems žmonėms teikiančiose institucijose. Mokslinis tyrimas finansuotas Europos socialinio fondo lėšomis, įgyvendinant projektą „Psichosocialinių veiksnių ir komercializavimo svarba efektyviam paslaugas teikiančių organizacijų funkcionavimui ir vystymuisi“ Nr.

Participatory action research in organization is considered as interpretative qualitative research method for empowering and emancipation of managers and employees, promoting reflection and critical consciousness.

In the context of enhancement of neoliberal social policy these two types of organizations face challenges to meet needs of users. Private organizations are fostered to promote values based on critical humanistic theory. Public organizations are fostered to introduce neoliberal concept of empowerment. Methodology of PAR is designed implementing several stages of research in private and public elderly care organizations to meet current challenges. The first stage of research project involved explorative focus groups in four organizations (two private and two public) seeking to reveal needs for change in elderly care organizations and to create scenarios for implementation of these changes. The second stage implies practical realization of scenarios in organizations what will be led by reflections and critical group discussions with managers and employees. The last stage concludes the process of research by providing methodological guidance for promoting changes in organizations of different sectors and produce knowledge on development of practice in elderly care.
