The D.B.A. capstone project requires that students know how to collect, organize, and interpret data. In this course, students broaden their research and general analysis skills as they further explore methodology and project types to incorporate into their doctoral study. Students engage in coursework focusing on qualitative and case study research methods, through which they learn to focus their analysis on efforts to improve the quality of an organization and its performance. Students examine techniques for thinking in an action-oriented manner, as if they were consultants, so that they can apply their own doctoral study in the real world. Finally, students engage in an iterative process of writing a proposal, incorporating feedback from peers and the course instructor. Ultimately, the proposal is offered by students as a document for review for consideration by potential mentors for their doctoral study.
Week 6 Introduction
Evaluating Qualitative Research
The Walden University definition of positive social change is â€œa deliberate process of creating and applying ideas, strategies, and actions to promote the worth, dignity, and development of individuals, communities, organizations, institutions, cultures, and societies. Positive social change results in the improvement of human and social conditionsâ€ (https://catalog.waldenu.edu). While your doctoral study might begin with a problem that is of interest to you personally, your research should also result in a solution that enhances the well-being of others or organizations.
This week, you will consider the potential social impacts of gaining more insight into and possible solutions for the problem you have identified. How will your research benefit the field of management and how will it be applied in practice?
In addition to this consideration, you will also evaluate the methods for ensuring quality used in the doctoral study you selected in Week 1. What methods will you use to ensure quality in your own study and how will this benefit other scholars in the field?
By the end of this week, you will be able to:
â€¢Articulate the potential impacts for positive social change that might result from your proposed study
â€¢Evaluate the quality of a chosen doctoral-level research design
â€¢Assess validity-related concerns for qualitative studies related to business research
â€¢Create a first draft of an open-code document with theme analysis for peer and faculty feedback
Application 2: Coding of the Interview and Theme Analysis
In Chapter 8 of your Creswell text, you learn about the core elements of qualitative data analysis. Coding the data is the first step. In this process, you reduce the data gathered into segments, assigning names as you go along. Your assignment for this week is to code your interview transcript to find themes. Be sure to consider your research question as you begin to code.
Your assignment should contain the following elements:
1. Your research question for this interview
2. A list of the codes you developed for your interview transcript
3. A description of your thinking or working process, explaining how you developed your codes, including any evolution of your coding system
4. In-text coding for your interview. This means that you are to select chunks of data and apply the codes to your interview transcript. Keep your interview transcript intact as a whole and show where you have applied the codes to the text.
