Task 2 The Research Plan – Plan a new piece of work
Gelbard and Carmeli describe the limitations of their study in the final section of the paper (Appendix 1 below) and suggest future avenues for research, such as investigating the stakeholder’s influence on project success. They also suggest that qualitative techniques may be more successful.
Your task is to plan a new piece of research with a new research question
‘ What influence does different stakeholders’ involvement have in project success’.
You can choose the project domain and you will have to choose and justify, with evidence, an objective measure of project success. You should also include a consideration of the ethical, legal and professional issues that may be relevant. You will write a research plan based on the requirements given in the module guide for details.
