This is the concluding project for this Graduate Business Analytics  and Research Methods course. It offers students the opportunity to show  mastery of all key elements of Research Design, Research Methods,  Analytics, and mastery of designing and executing a business-related  research proposal. The big picture is for students to assume the  position of a research analyst for a corporation or being an independent  research analyst, tasked to understand a corporate problem and offer  solution(s) via a professionally conducted proposal that would mitigate  or alleviate the problem or issue. Three phases fulfill this project:  weeks 3, 5, and 7 (Phase III is a combination of all phases to make a  full document). Therefore phase content scoring less than 75 percent  will result in a redo of some parts of the phase or complete phase.

For Phase II:

Do not combine with Phase I content. Address the below:

  1. Introduction to your paper… Since the first paragraph  or section of a document is assumed to be the introduction of the paper,  the word ‘Introduction’ is not needed. Do not begin a paper with the  word ‘Introduction’ as a heading (APA, 2020, p. 47). The paper’s title  should be the first heading above the first body paragraph of your paper  and must be bolded – Check Sample Student paper (APA, 2020, pp. 61-67)
  2. The Scope of the Study (full details – chapter 1-4,  & 19)… In the situation of a project report on some business, or  industry, the scope of the study covers the upper and lower limits of  the area you have studied. The scope covers what, how, when, and where  the study was done or will be done. What data were/will be taken as  inputs, what criteria were used/to be used for comparing the data, what  was/will be the outcome of the comparison, etc. a) The details of the  scope depends upon the area you have selected, the bigger the industry  the more details are in the scope. b) This scope of the study will be  the basis for the business decision.
  3. Literature Review (Comprehensive – chapter 5)… A  literature review is a comprehensive summary of previous research on a  topic (the problem already discussed). The literature review surveys  scholarly articles, books, and other sources relevant to a particular  area of research. The review should enumerate, describe, summarize,  objectively evaluate, and clarify this previous research/problem.
  4. Theoretical Framework (well detailed – chapter 6)… The  theoretical framework in a study is based on an existing theory or  theories (e.g., a theory of motivation). Theories are formulated to  explain, predict, and understand phenomena and, in many cases, to  challenge and extend existing knowledge within the limits of critical  bounding assumptions. The theoretical framework is the structure that  can hold or support a theory of a research study. The theoretical  framework introduces and describes the theory that explains why the  research problem under study exists. Do not develop your own conceptual  framework from an existing theory because it will take you a long time  to complete the project.
  5. Research Design (be very specific – chapters 7-17)…  Research design is a plan to answer your research question(s). The  design of a study defines the study type (descriptive, correlation,  semi-experimental, experimental, review, meta-analytic) and sub-type  (e.g., descriptive-longitudinal case study), research problem,  hypotheses, independent and dependent variables, experimental design,  and, if applicable, data collection methods.
  6. Summary for Phase II and projection of Phase III

The paper must have a minimum of 5 references and in APA format.
