ALL research is exploratory; However, some research is more exploratory than others as, rather than examining the known it takes a leap of faith, a step into the unknown. And while, not all exploratory studies reveal new information, you cannot know this until you are deep into the research itself. This article examines the murky world of exploratory research through an examination of some of the change moments and discoveries in the work of Fools for Health’s, “What’s the Value of a Smile” project.
