Qualitative Approaches to DBA Research (Discussion 1)
During the first course of this program, you considered what it means to be a scholar-practitioner and also contrasted DBA programs with traditional PhD programs. As you plan for your doctoral study, keep in mind that one of your objectives should be to think and function in an action-oriented manner so that your research will be applied in practice. Consider what it means to conduct research that will affect change in everyday business practice.
Based on the reading and a detailed review of the "Research Design Considerations Flowchart" and the diagram "Preparing a Good Qualitative Study Within the Walden DBA Context" (on this week's Resources page):
