ANALYSIS OF THE PLANNING PROCESS IN THE HCZ 2 Analysis of the Planning Process in the HCZ Case Study This paper analyzes the planning process of the Harlem Children’s Home case study. The paper demonstrates how the case can be examined through the lens of the ARPP model and through the characteristics of action research. The paper then considers the ways through which being a cooperative project between local government and education affected the planning process. Approaching the Planning through ARPP Model In reference to Reason & Bradbury (2008), the ARPP model and the characteristics of Action research approaches projects in three stages. The HCZ case study is one such project that can be undertaken in the three phases of a project planning through action research. The first three steps of action research include (1) identifying an issue or topic to study, (2) collecting data related to the identified issue, and (3) analyzing and interpreting the collected data. These steps are then followed by implementation of the identified improvement. The ARPP will ensure that the steps are participatory and involves and or considers all the stakeholders of the organization.
