Help me write something

I need you to write a report for something. write a qualitative research plan

workplace or in an organisation that you are familiar with, perform the

following tasks:

 

1. Briefly provide some background information to the

organisation.

2. Identify a general business problem or opportunity

where a research study could assist decision making.

3. As part of the preliminary information gathering

process conduct a brief literature review on the problem area. In writing your

review, note that with a literature review the researcher critically analyses

what has been written and relates it to the specific problem he or she is

reference articles in your review.

4. Define the specific research question(s) for the

general problem.

5. Identify a qualitative research method (in-depth

interviews, focus groups, etc) that could be used to address the identified

problem. Justify with reasons, your choice of method.

6. Using the qualitative method discussed in the

previous task, develop a qualitative research plan detailing how you would

conduct the research that addresses the research question(s).

The research plan should address, at least, the following:

◦  

What type of issues/questions should be explored? If

using focus group, prepare the moderator's guide; if using in-depth interviews,

prepare the interview guide.

◦  

How many groups, interviews or case studies would you

recommend?

◦  

How will you select the sample of research

participants?

◦  

Location - i.e. where should the interviews /groups be
