Business Research Literature Review

19 Feb

HI6008 Assessment Two

Business Research Literature Review

Due Friday 4pm of Week 06,

8-12 pages excluding references, worth 30%

This is an individual assignment.

 

Literature Review is to be submitted by Friday 4pm in Week 6.

 

This will consist of developing a comprehensive literature review chapter for the business research proposal. You will have to identify a business research topic, describe the literature on the research topic and provide hypotheses based on the literature for the research questions you have already defined in your research proposal in HI6007.

 

It is a special form of information gathering where you present the known body of knowledge relevant to the issue(s) or problem(s) you are addressing

 

The literature review is NOT just a string of authors, names, pages and references.  It is structured as if you are developing an argument explaining why you need to undertake your research. Possibly, you might point to: a gap in the literature, or an issue or question that needs more evidence or research.

 

From week 04 and 05 tutorials you learnt how to develop a literature review.

 

A strong suggestion is to follow the following format discussed in week 05:

 

 

  1. Introduction to Literature Review

 

Start with introduction which includes a list of the topic you will do a literature review on, what your hypotheses are from these topics that you are starting out with (what you think is true about the topics).

 

E.g. I believe outsourcing for IT services I still growing and providing better quality for companies.

 

1.1 Topic 1

Define your 1st key word or phrase. Provide strengths and weaknesses from literature about the topic. Provide at least 4 references. Analyse your hypothesis about this topic and discuss your conclusion.

 

1.2 Topic 2

Define your 2nd key word or phrase. Provide strengths and weaknesses from literature about the topic. Provide at least 4 references. Analyse your hypothesis about this topic and discuss your conclusion.

 

1.3 Topic 3

Define your 3rd key word or phrase. Provide strengths and weaknesses from literature about the topic. Provide at least 4 references. Analyse your hypothesis about this topic and discuss your conclusion.

 

1.4 Topic 4

Define your 4th key word or phrase. Provide strengths and weaknesses from literature about the topic. Provide at least 4 references. Analyse your hypothesis about this topic and discuss your conclusion.

 

Add Topics as you see fit to build your literature review here ….

 

 

1.5 Conclusion:

 

Finish with conclusion which includes a list of the topic you discussed in the literature review, a summary of what your literature research discovered and a conclusion on the hypotheses from these topics that you started with.

 

(E.g. After studying the literature on outsourcing for IT services, there are a lot of issues in quality of customer service and product quality when it comes to some of the outsourcing IT service providers.)
