Instructions Develop a final proposal for a hypothetical study using the research problem “Several factors have been found to affect job satisfaction among employees working in different organizations with employee motivation in turn influencing organizational outcomes”. Specifically, for this assignment, you are asked to develop an expanded proposal. Be sure to use scholarly sources to support all assertions and research decisions. It is also vital that you ensure there is alignment between the components of your paper; you should use Krathwohl’s Chain of Reasoning. The proposal needs to include:
• A statement as to the problem the research study will address as well as justification and evidence to verify that the problem exists. Remember the problem statement should reflect your degree type (DBA – Organizational Leadership). PLEASE USE THE FORMAT BELOW FOR THE RESEARCH PROBLEM • A purpose statement that outlines how you will address the problem. • A list of the research questions, including hypotheses if a quantitative or mixed study. A description of the research methodology you have chosen (QUNATITATIVE) and a justification as to why this approach is best suited to address the problem and answer the specific research questions. • A discussion on the research design you have proposed (Case study) and a justification as to why this design is the best choice and aligns with other aspects of the study. • A description of the data collection process, with justifications, to include a discussion of the following: o Overview of the population and sampling technique, o Instruments used (Survey) o Overview of process for collection and any challenges you envision. • A brief discussion of the proposed analysis techniques with justification on alignment of techniques with problem, purpose, and questions.
• A brief discussion of how reliability and validity (or trustworthiness) will be maintained. • A brief discussion of the limitations and ethical considerations, including how limitations, biases, and ethical considerations will be addressed. Format for quantitative studies: The purpose of this ______ (experiment? Survey?) study is (was? Will be?) to test the theory of ______ that ______ (compares? Relates?) the ______ (independent variable) to ______ (dependent variable), controlling for ______ (control variables) for ______ (participants) at ______ (the research site). The independent variable(s) ______ will be defined as ______ (provide a definition). The dependent variable(s) ______ will be defined as ______ (provide a definition), and the control and intervening variable(s), ______, (identify the control and intervening variables) will be defined as _________ (provide a general definition).
