Smith (2012) states as your project matures, you understand how important it is to have a research design. It will lay out the methods and procedures you need to employ as you collect information.

According to Mutch (2013) once you have narrowed down your research-question problem or issue, you need to work through a following questions to help you select the most appropriate research design:

  • What will be the most suitable methodology, approach, or research style?
  • What kind of data do you anticipate gathering? • How might you gather this data?
  • From whom will you gather this data?
  • How might you analyze this data?
  • How might you display this data?

PhD students should consider research design early in their first year. The way that you design and plan your research will have significant implications for the success of your project. Although you will probably write the introduction to your thesis last, a well-designed research project should first work through these steps right from the start. (Davies, 2013)

Approach Statement for Research Methodology & Approach Choice

  1. Make a decision on what topic to study in the discipline of leadership.
  2. Find the gap in current Leadership Theory and construct a theoretical/conceptual framework (Farquhar, 2012).
  3. Construct the research problem and research questions which will guide methodology choice (Thietart, 2001).
  4. Identifying, based on the nature of the research problem (Creswell, 2009), the purpose of the study. The purpose seeks to explore “how.” concepts affect a phenomenon.
