In this chapter, we describe methods used to increase the learning in the organization. We focus on the role of the researchers in this process and the need to reduce the bias introduced by them. We base this chapter on the theories and practices from the software process improvement field. However, we focus on identifying learning outcomes from studies, organizing them in categories, and packaging for the next action research cycle.
