This paper outlines the work of the Monash Action Research Cohort since the presentation at the 2003 conference at Greenwich (Haslett et al., 2005). The initial group of eight are writing up and beginning to graduate. A new cohort of 16 candidates is forming and will be finalised in early 2006. The paper reflects on the lessons learned as the first cohort begin to graduate for the PhD program and on the experiences of the members of that first cohort. A model for the sustainability of the program which incorporates graduates from the program as Associate Supervisors is developed and discussed.
The process of establishing the next cohorts is outlined and the supporting structures which include a PhD project on the cohorts themselves are detailed. The new projects and the new candidates' expectations and aspirations are discussed. This will include a discussion of an apparent shift away from Business Action Research to the Not For Profit AR.
