For this assignment, you will turn your attention to the Problem Statement and Research Method Choice Alignment sections of the Research Prospectus Template. As you begin to think about your research topic, you must consider how it is related to your degree program (e.g., DM, DCS) and your concentration area. In addition, it is necessary to reflect upon the problem you plan to study and through this process of reflection to develop a justification of how your choice of research method is appropriate for addressing the study problem you have chosen.
Locate the Problem Statement section of the Research Prospectus, and draft 1 paragraph of no more than 250300 words that addresses the following:
- Describe the study problem you will focus on for your dissertation project.
- The problem must be both practice-based and scholarship-supported, and therefore needs to consider both practice and recent research.
- Cite theoretical, conceptual, and empirical peer-reviewed literature to support the relevance of your proposed study problem.
Remember this is the first draft of your study problem and you will continue to refine this problem until your Dissertation Proposal has been approved.
