Develop and submit a Bullet Point Outline of Key Elements of the Study to include citations where called for as well as references. This assignment is a thinking assignment and will take some time to get it right.

  • General Problem – One sentence describing the overarching Business Problem with multiple citations that support the existence of the problem
  • Specific Problem – One sentence describing a narrowly focused organization(s) / region(s) / etc. being studied in order to provide insight into the general problem
  • Purpose Statement – One sentence indicating how the research will study the specific problem and by extension the general problem.
  • Research Questions – What questions need to be answered in order to accomplish the purpose of the research.
  • Nature of the Study – What research method and design is most appropriate and why is it the most appropriate to address the research questions supported by at least one citation for the chosen method and one for chosen design. The availability of existing survey tools or numerical archival data that can address research questions is a significant factor in choosing a quantitative method and should be carefully considered.
  • Hypotheses (if quantitative) – Specific testable statements that can be measured with a quantitative analytical tool that address specific research questions.

Remember the requirement that each element must flow from and align with the previous elements logically. You are not writing a narrative here, just sentences with citations where appropriate that provide the core of information you are trying to convey. Keep in mind that multiple citations are going to be necessary to establish the existence of the general problem being studied. Find them now and save yourself a dramatic future revision!
