Course Description:
The D.B.A. capstone project requires that students know how to collect, organize, and interpret data. In this course, students broaden their research and general
analysis skills as they further explore methodology and project types to incorporate into their doctoral study. Students engage in coursework focusing on qualitative
and case study research methods, through which they learn to focus their analysis on efforts to improve the quality of an organization and its performance. Students
examine techniques for thinking in an action-oriented manner, as if they were consultants, so that they can apply their own doctoral study in the real world. Finally,
students engage in an iterative process of writing a proposal, incorporating feedback from peers and the course instructor. Ultimately, the proposal is offered by
students as a document for review for consideration by potential mentors for their doctoral study.
Week 3 Introduction
Designing a Qualitative Study and Approach
The foundation of every successful doctoral study is a well-formulated business problem statement. You have likely already identified a business topic about which you
are passionate, but is it a business problem that you can actually investigate? For example, does the business problem statement have a limited enough scope, and does
enough research exist to support your inquiry? Critically thinking about factors such as these is necessary for constructing a pragmatic research question and a
focused and promising doctoral research study.
This week, you will focus on developing your business problem statement for your own study, concentrating on its scope and on the potential resources and research
methods that you can apply to it. Be sure to follow the criteria in the Walden doc study rubric. Work with your colleagues and Instructor to determine your statement’s
feasibility and appropriateness as it relates to your doctoral study. You will use their feedback to hone and refine your business problem statement.
In addition, you will continue your evaluation of your selected doctoral study, focusing on the data collection methods and their fit with the identified problem and
approach.
Consider the relationship between the problem, the methods, and data collection techniques and how this relationship helps to focus a study.
Learning Outcomes
By the end of this week, you will be able to:
Evaluate data collection methods for qualitative research in a business-related doctoral study
Examine how to focus an appropriate qualitative study
Create a first draft of your business problem statement
Assess ethical challenges in conducting qualitative research
Finding More Focus in a Qualitative Study
You must always consider the research method you plan to use when collecting your data. This can have an impact on how you proceed. The five research approaches can
vary in the variety of information collected, the scope of the issues, and the invasiveness of the data collection effort. Since most of you will be using a Case
Study:
Review the Haug or Reinke proposed doctoral study from Week 1 (Doc Sharing) .
Review the methodology section and compare and contrast the design and the method with the information you have learned from the Creswell and Yin course texts. (2-3
paragraphs)
How might you apply to your own study what you learned from Reinke or Haug about Case Study Design? (1-2 paragraphs)
Paraphrase please – NO QUOTES from the studies – use your own words!
