DOC690 Doctoral Study Proposal

Module 3 Case


Case Assignment

Methods Exploration

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.

Assignment Expectations

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.


DOC690 Doctoral Study Proposal

Module 3 SLP


Please revise and submit your Introduction – Chapter 1. If you have not already done so, insert it into the current version of the DSP template available under the Forms & Templates tab of the DBA Doctoral Resources guide.

Remember, your Introduction chapter should provide a brief overview of the components of your DSP study and include the following key items:

Chapter Introduction

Briefly introduce the overall idea of your DSP research study and the study design components. The final draft of this chapter will introduce all 5 chapters of the DSP.


Present an overview of why this research topic is currently of interest. Describe the facts and relevant context as a background leading up to the study problem and purpose. Focus on the area of research interest, briefly laying the groundwork for what has been done in the area and why the area is of important social or practical concern, or of theoretical interest.

Statement of the Problem

Articulation of a concise problem statement is the key to a successful proposal/Doctoral Study Project manuscript and typically requires many revisions before the proposal is approved. The problem statement is a brief discussion of a problem or observation succinctly identifying and documenting the need for and importance of the study. Clearly describe and document the problem that prompted the study.

Note: The problem statement must align to the language of the purpose statement and research questions. Terminology used must also align to the method and design chosen.

Purpose of the Study

Ensure that the purpose is a logical, explicit research response to the stated problem. This problem should be substantiated with a “gap” that can be cited from the literature or from the organization.

Note: The purpose statement must align to the language of the problem statement and research questions. Terminology used must also align to the method and design chosen.

Conceptual Framework

Identify and articulate the conceptual and theoretical foundations of the proposed study based on a review of the relevant literature. A graphic representation of the framework is useful but not required.

Note: This framework should represent the key concepts and theories/models used in the literature review in Chapter 2.

Research Questions

Ensure that the Research Questions directly align with the stated purpose and that the methodology and design chosen corresponds with the research questions. Qualitative research questions must be open-ended. A minimum of one research question is required.

Note: Mixed methods studies may also require applicable hypotheses to be explained here.

Method and Design Overview

Discuss the proposed research method (qualitative or mixed methods) first. Then discuss the proposed research design (case study, action research, process improvement, etc.). Discussion is not simply a listing and description of the chosen research design; rather, elaboration demonstrates how the proposed method and design accomplish the study goals, why the design is the optimum choice for the proposed research, and how the method aligns with the purpose and research questions. Provide a brief discussion of the proposed study design, data collection instruments, and data analysis procedures.


Demonstrate why the study is important and describe the contribution(s) to the field of study. This section should reflect the need for the study and the benefits of an answer to the proposed study purpose and research questions.

Key Terms

This section should be organized in dictionary format; alphabetize terms, provide a brief definition from the literature, and cite each definition. Terms should be important concepts related to the topic and concepts that would not be known by a layperson reader.

Five to 10 key terms are expected.

Chapter Summary

Provide a recap of the major components of the DSP study topic and study design. Summary should briefly transition the reader to the next chapter of the DSP.

SLP Assignment Expectations

SLP submission must be in the required DSP Template.

Students should use the required section headings and provide 1 or 2 paragraphs per section to show base knowledge of the required components of their DSP study.

The final DSP proposal draft in DOC700 will require all details of the Introduction Chapter to be completed.

Conforms to all structural, grammatical, and APA 7th edition conventions.
