Research Problem: The first step in research is defining a research problem. Describe a problem from your business experience that you wish to study. Ask yourself “what are the top three problems that I struggle with in my business every day” and choose one of those problems. This must be a broad problem that should appeal to other businesses, beyond your own. Bigger, more complex, messier problems are actually better than smaller problems, even if you have no idea how to solve them. Describe why this problem is a “problem,” and whose problem is it. Provide some evidence (statistics, case/company examples, etc.) of the magnitude and scope of this problem.




Research Questions: List 2-3 RQs to explore the above problem. Try to have questions that start with “what”, “why”, “how”, “when”, etc. Avoid questions that yes/no answers. See sample RQs from class handouts.



Practical Contribution: Explain briefly how answering the above RQs will help your practice/business and that of others.




Literature Review Process: Review 10-15 research papers that informs us of our current state of knowledge in your problem area. If you find no prior paper in this area, expand your search terms to extract 10-15 papers in related areas. Describe the process by which you selected papers for review (e.g., which databases were used, what keywords, etc.), how you filtered your search results, actual counts of papers extracted in each search, etc.




Synthesis: Create tables summarizing what prior literature tells us about your problem area,




Analysis (Gaps): What patterns do you see in your literature review? What gaps or opportunities do you see (i.e., what is MISSING from your literature review)? Note that gaps may NOT be explicitly mentioned in the literature; you may use your intuition and experience to identify what is not there. Based on this analysis, do your RQs still seem appropriate? If not, modify the RQs accordingly.





Hypotheses: Propose 3-7 hypotheses to answer your RQs. Identify which hypotheses address which RQs; don’t include hypotheses that don’t address any of your RQs. Each hypothesis must have clearly defined and measurable DV, IV, and/or MV. Propose hypotheses that are insightful and new rather than tautological or obvious (see examples from class). Explain your rationale for each hypothesis (separately). Theories provide logical bases for justifying hypotheses; however theories are not necessary for this proposal.





Measurement: Create a table listing the different variables in your hypotheses, and provide conceptual and operational definition for each variable. Feel free to list specific items or instruments that you can use to measure each variable. List the source of each instrument. If no prior measures are available for some constructs, describe how you will build your own measure and how will you assess the quality of that measure.





Methods: How will you collect data for your research? If survey, describe whether it is a cross-sectional or longitudinal survey, sampling frame, desired sample size, and how you will maximize response rates. If experiment, describe the experimental design, desired sample size, treatment, treatment manipulation checks, and what data will be collected before and after the experiment. If case research, how many cases, case site(s), site selection strategy, key respondents, what data you will gather from each respondent, data triangulation strategy, etc. How will you analyze data thus collected?
