Research Deliverable (2)
Objective: To answer the client question with in depth research that challenges the researcher to look at the question from a variety of angles. To ensure breadth and depth of research.
Client Question: what technological partnerships could they leverage to improve their product? Is there a model they could follow (e.g. Sales force)? What are the key features that could improve the product? Are there other non-technology partnerships that would be beneficial?
Format: Use the same format as research deliverable (1). Spelling, grammar, etc. are not graded. Please include your key findings organized as follows
- List your team objective/overall question
- List your specific tasks assigned for this deliverable
- Describe your research with the following information (or use the secondary research notes document outline)
- Date of research
- List the gaps you identified in your first research deliverable and explain the research you found for these gaps.
- The key findings by source in 2 – 3 sentences or bullets
- Sources of information utilized in APA format. Include link if found online.
- Include the key findings from your first research deliverable in 3-5 sentences or bullets
- List the areas that you will not cover. This will be used in case the client asks a question in this area
- Clearly identify/differentiate the research from your second deliverable.
Please summarize your key findings succinctly. What did you find in your research? What information did it give you? What is missing? Your findings should be thorough enough that I can clearly understand what you learned as well as useful enough that you can easily use them directly for your analysis/presentation preparation.
Although volume of research was emphasized for the first deliverable, quality is more important here. You still need a quantity of research but this deliverable should be more focused on what you need specifically to draw conclusions.
The second deliverable should address your gaps as well as any other additional information you found.
Do not list a bibliography. Match the findings with the citation so that it is clear what you found where.
