Applied Research Project

The purpose of this learning activity is to facilitate the acquisition, comprehension, and application of the material learned during the class. It is also designed to develop research, critical thinking, reading, and writing skills. The topic for your Applied Research Project is up to you but it must be oriented towards improving a process or projected future business needs.

For this project, you will write an informative or persuasive paper with a thesis that relies on data uncovered through your research. You must conduct research using at least 5 of the tools learned during the class. Your paper will provide an explanation of your topic, the research you conducted, the data that was collected, the tools that were used and their application. It will also provide an analysis of results, and any decisions or changes that took place as a result.

To conduct research, you may use printed material, personal interviews, original surveys, Internet information, or any other source you need.
