Assignment: Conducting a Literature Review on a Research Problem/Phenomenon
One of the early stages in developing a research project is to examine the available literature on your topic of interest and related topics. A literature review is a carefully crafted examination of credible literature relevant to your focus topic. Discovering what others have produced and organizing and synthesizing this information into a coherent picture will allow you to place your own research interests into the larger context. A literature review should not be a mere summary of your articles but instead should relate to how the literature supports your study's focus.
To prepare for this Assignment, review this Learning Resources, and conduct a literature search in the Walden Library for articles related to the "problem" or "phenomenon" you submitted as part of your Draft Business Problem Statement for your Assignment in your previous course (DDBA 8161). Focus only on full-text scholarly or peer-reviewed articles or doctoral studies/dissertations. Narrow or broaden your results so that you have six (three quantitative and three qualitative) viable scholarly sources.
The response should include a reference list. Double-space, using Times New Roman 12 pnt font, one-inch margins, and APA style of writing and citations.
