What are the indicators that your research and selected methods are relevant to your DSP topic?
Although you won’t solidify your research design until you’ve completed the work involved in developing a great Literature Review, there are some key elements you can begin to determine now. One of the first things you need to think through is “Based on your exploration of your topic in the literature so far, where does your proposed research fall on the continuum of Exploratory to Mature research?”
Please review the following article:
Edmondson, A. C. & McManus, S. E. (2007). Methodological fit in management field research. Academy of Management Review, 32(4), 1155-1179.
- Based on your review of the article above, what are the indicators that your research and selected methods are relevant to your DSP topic?
- Based on your applied research topic, which research methodology (qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods) is appropriate for conducting your proposed study? Which research design (case study, action research, process improvement, etc.) is appropriate for conducting your proposed study? Please explain why this methodology and design was selected and relate your explanation back to the proposed study.
