Task objective:

The Qualifying Report should show evidence that the student has:
· read widely around the subject area
· identified the scope and aims of their research
· gained a detailed knowledge of previous work of direct relevance to their own research
· understood the implications of previous work for their own research
· planned and designed appropriate research work for the remaining years of study (my estimation 4
years in total)
· considered ethical issues surrounding their proposed research
· undertaken a risk assessment and carried out relevant risk-management practices
· demonstrated necessary practical skills or identified how and when these will be achieved
· sourced any participants necessary to undertake their research
· appropriately acknowledged and referenced original sources and secondary literature
· demonstrated the writing skills necessary to author a clear concise and well-written thesis
· considered the pace at which work must be completed in order to submit their thesis on time

The piece of written work submitted should demonstrate the student’s theoretical and methodological
competence. The elements of the report may or may not constitute chapters of the thesis but should in all
cases provide:

  1. an overview of the main problem to be studied
    b. an overview of the principal literature or other context for the research
    c. a detailed account of the work already carried out
    d. a general strategy for future work including a work plan and details about ethics
    submission/approval where relevant
    e. a timetable for the remaining work envisaged
    f. a provisional table of contents for the final thesis.

The report should include both theoretical and empirical work. Theoretical work might include a literature
review theoretical analysis and a statement of main research objectives methods and anticipated outcomes.
Experimental work would normally be expected to include the report from one study. In cases where this
work is not expected at this point the chapter could include a report of preparatory work ongoing empirical
work or pilot studies.

Task description:

This order is a continuity to a previous. It is composed of two sections:
1- 3000 words about Operational decision-making perhaps comparing this concept to Tactical and
Strategic decisions and any relevant concept
2- 600 words section to summarize this “3000 words” doc.
