Module 3 – Case

Revising the DSP Research Proposal (Revise Chapter 1)

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 where your proposed research relates to your applied research topic, what method(s) are appropriate? Please explain why the method(s) is/are appropriate and relate your explanation back to the proposed study.

Case Study Design

We continue with an exploration of case study design. This section begins with a consideration of research questions and units of analysis, followed by the role of implicit or explicit theory in driving the research, considerations of quality (validity and reliability), and ending with the selection of single vs. multiple case study designs and mixed methods.
