DDBA 8303: Qualitative and Case Study Methodology for Business Analysis Research


Week 1 Assignment: Selecting Your Small-Scale Project Subject


To prepare for this Assignment, identify an applied business problem for the basis of your study. You are free to choose the problem for your project; however, you might consider choosing a problem related or similar to your proposed Doctoral Study problem, because the course exercises may assist you in moving forward with your own Doctoral Study. Select at least two interviewees to use for the study. Consider having backup interviewees to use if needed.

By Day 7

Submit

·         A two-paragraph summary of the process by which you selected your business problem, your interviewees (two or more), and how you will gain access to your participants

·         A brief rationale for why you have chosen this topic and detailed information identifying why the interviewees are appropriate

 

Week 1 Discussion: Qualitative Designs for DBA Research

To prepare for this Discussion, review this week’s Required Readings and consider the similarities and differences between case study and phenomenological research designs. Be sure to focus on the benefits of case study design in terms of time and cost within the context of DBA doctoral research.

By Day 3

Post an assessment of case study design versus phenomenological research design for doctoral research. Your assessment should include the following:

·         Compare and contrast case study and phenomenological research designs, including commitments of time and cost for each design.

·         Explain the benefits of using a case study for DBA doctoral research, including an example from scholarly research that supports your assertion.

Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and one or more additional scholarly sources.

 
 
Week 2 Assignment Small-Scale Qualitative Research Project—The Interview Guide


To prepare for this Assignment, review the Small-Scale Qualitative Research Project: Interview Guide Template, provided in this week’s Required Readings, and consider what type of research questions to ask. Keep in mind that your research question (Level 2) for this Assignment should be one that can be answered, at least in part, by the Level 1 questions asked in each interview. Questions that provoke a yes/no response are not permitted in a Doctoral Study interview guide.

By Day 7

Submit your completed Interview Guide, including the following components:

·         Primary Business Research Phenomenon

·         Research Question (Level 2)

·         Primary Research Goal(s)

·         Initial Probe Questions

·         Targeted Interview Questions (Level 1)

·         Targeted Follow-up Questions

·         Wrap-up Question

Note: Be sure to use the Interview Guide Template to complete this Assignment.

 

 
Week 2 Discussion Principles and Methods of Qualitative Data Collection

To prepare for this Discussion, review this week’s Required Readings and consider why the different sources of evidence are important to the work of a DBA doctoral researcher, including the role of triangulation within the qualitative data collection process.

By Day 3

Post an analysis of sources and methods of data collection in the context of your DBA doctoral research question. In your analysis, do the following:

·         Explain how the “Four Principles of Data Collection” from Yin (2014) support your ability to address your DBA doctoral research question.

·         Explain the importance of utilizing multiple sources of evidence and triangulation within the data collection process. Be sure to address the specific types of data triangulation (data, investigation, investigator, methodological) and their relationship to data quality. Be sure to provide a scholarly example to support your explanation.

Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and one or more additional scholarly sources.

 

Week 3 Discussion: Reliability and Validity

To prepare for this Discussion, review Figure 2.3, “Case Study Tactics for Four Design Tests” on page 45 of Yin (2014), as well as Table 5.3, “Threats to Reliability” on page 203 of Saunders, Lewis, and Thornhill (2015), and consider the different data quality issues that can arise within the doctoral research process. Be sure to take into consideration such concerns as credibility, transferability, dependability, and confirmability.

By Day 3

Post an analysis of reliability and validity within the context of qualitative research data analysis. In your analysis, do the following:

·         Identify sources for data quality issues that could negatively impact a doctoral research study.

·         Explain the importance of reliability and validity within a DBA doctoral research study.

·         Explain how reliability and validity can be achieved within the doctoral research process.

 

 

Week 4 Assignment 2 Small-Scale Qualitative Research Project—Conducting the Interviews
 

This week you will complete your interviews and transcription for your small-scale qualitative research project.

To prepare for this Assignment, you will take into consideration feedback from your Instructor on the Interview Guide submitted in Week 2 when conducting your interviews. Each interview should last 15–20 minutes and must be audio-recorded, because this is the standard for good practice in qualitative research interviews. Be sure to consider the different options for recording the audio of your interviews, including programs like Audacity, Sony Acid Xpress, and others. Don’t forget to save each interview audio recording as an MP3 file in case your Instructor asks to review it. Once you have completed your interviews and captured them as audio files, you will need to transcribe the interviews.

By Day 7

Submit your completed interview transcriptions.

o   If either of your interviews lasts longer than 20 minutes, transcribe only a maximum of 20 minutes for each interview.

 

 Week 4 Discussion Dealing With Difficult Participants

To prepare for this Discussion, consider the following scenario:

You are a researcher conducting a qualitative research study and have scheduled a series of interviews. As you begin to conduct your interviews, you encounter a number of problems: Particiant A does not expand on his or her responses, providing mostly one-word answers, and refuses outright to answer some questions. Participant B continually goes off topic, sharing personal anecdotes, and takes up interview time with unrelated information. Finally, Participant C has been difficult to schedule and attempts to withdraw his or her contribution to the process after showing initial interest. Consider strategies you might employ to address these challenges and any potential insights you may gain toward your growth as an independent scholar.

Post a strategic approach for addressing participant difficulty in qualitative interviews. In your strategic approach, do the following:

·         Identify two or more strategies for addressing difficult participants within the interview process.

·         Assess the effectiveness of your identified strategies based on scholarly research. Be sure to provide scholarly examples to support your assessment.

 

Week 5 Assignment Small-Scale Qualitative Research Project–Coding of the Interviews and Theme Analysis



To prepare for this Assignment, review the Transcript and Coding Template document provided in this week’s Required Readings and consider again the transcription of your interviews that you submitted in Week 4.

By Day 7

Submit a completed coding and theme analysis for each interview based on the template provided in this week’s Learning Resources. Your analysis should include the following:

o   Your research question for these interviews

o   A list of the codes you developed from your interview transcripts

o   A description of your thinking or working process, explaining how you developed your codes, including any evolution of your coding system

o   In-text coding for your interviews (This means that you are to select and identify chunks of data [codes]. Then create a list of themes and their descriptions developed from the codes. Keep your interview transcripts intact, and show where you have applied the codes to the text.)

Note: Be sure to use the Transcript and Coding Template to complete this Assignment.
