We discuss Participatory Design (PD) as a democratic process and its implications for innovation. We see strong similarities between PD and Action Research (AR), as both seek to create some kind of change based on the aquisition of knowledge. The knowledge aquired in PD and AR is intended to guide a sequence of necessary activities that lead to a desired change, yet there are also some fundamental differences between them.
