Question description

RETREIVAL ASSESSMENT

This assessment requires you to design and set out a research proposal in response to the scenario set out below. You are to imagine that you are responding to an invitation to submit a research proposal sponsored by a particular organization.

A large University wishes to encourage the greater use of teamwork amongst its staff and external stakeholders in its future development. What are the benefits of this approach to management, what are the barriers and main issues involved, and how might it be fostered?

Your research proposal should be structured as follows:

Background and Aims of the Study: This should include your interpretation of the brief – setting out the reasons for the research and a clear statement of the aims and objectives of the research (or central research question and sub-questions) It should also provide a suitable context and background for the issues and topic under investigation.

Review of the Literature: This should include a relevant and critical overview of the existing literature on the topic of study. What is already known, what are the key issues and areas of debate?You will need to establish the currentstate of knowledge on the topic under investigation (the theories, concepts, ideas, issues, debates and so on) A literature review is not simply a description of relevant books/journals that you have read or that you think will be helpful to your research. You should paraphrase and critique (i.e. restate, in your own words, the main points made by the writer(s) in question, in addition to evaluating their contribution.

Research Design: This sets out your proposed research methodology and design including sampling strategies,data collection methods and techniques, and methods of analysis. You need to provide a concise explanation of the approach and method(s) that you proposing in order to operationalize your research objectives. You should mention the options open to you (e.g. a quantitative, qualitative approach, multi-method), state and justify the reasons for the option you have chosen.  Thought should be given to the sample (who, how many, where and so on) and for example, in the case of a questionnaire survey, reflect on issues such as the likely response rate, the type and wording of questions, and the statistical tests to be used in analysis of the data.  For qualitative methods such as focus groups, and interviews, thought should be given to the potential participants, the methods of recording and transcription, and the analytical techniques to be used. For documents, comment on the availability of archive material, and the method(s) of textual analysis to be employed. You will also need to comment on matters of ethics, validity, reliability and generalisability.

Appendices: Rather than disrupt the flow of the research proposal writing, relevant documentation can be placed in an appendix.

List of References: a full and detailed list of references should be included particularly relating to your literature review and research methodology.
