I’m stuck on a Business question and need an explanation.
The topic is “Leadership Styles in Small Business” This is a qualitative study. I have attached the last paper we did on this topic that the instructions mentions. I am looking at both the case and the slp from DOC 650 course and there is so much alike. I have uploaded both of them, I actually sent the professor both of them, hope fully he will have some mercy on us and understand why we made the mistake.
Module 1 – SLP
Technology, Innovation, and Creativity
The overall aim of the Session Long Project assignments in this course is to facilitate the further development of your DBA project, by developing the core of the literature review for your draft project. This will entail developing a structure for the material to be reviewed, identifying and accessing different kinds of source material, and organizing the material to support the aims of the project. At the end of this course, you are expected to have a working draft of chapter 2 of your DBA project that you can take into the next course, in which you develop a research methodology for the project.
It is important to stress that what you are developing here is only a draft. You are not bound by what you develop in this series of assignments; everything is subject to modification and improvement as you move toward the project itself. But it is important to take these assignments seriously, since they build toward a usable chapter. The more work you are able to put into your project during this course, the less you will be playing catch-up later on in the program, and the easier it will be to complete your project and obtain your degree.
During Module 1, you are expected to take the introduction to your project that you developed in your previous course, and annotate it to identify key areas in which literature will need to be searched and the other kinds of background information that you will need to develop in order to support your project.
Specifically, you are to:
Review your draft introduction that you developed previously. Using a copy of this introduction, develop an annotation for each paragraph in your introduction in which you identify various kinds of source material that might back up and justify the points made in the paragraph. Try to be as complete as you can. At this point, you do not need to describe specific sources; just the general kind of material you would like to search out in order to support your arguments.
It is possible that some paragraphs may not actually call for sources, if they are merely bridging text or are filler. In this case, you may simply note that this is a filler paragraph. There should not be very many of these if your draft is well prepared.
You may choose to use the “review” function in Microsoft Word to present your annotations, or you may choose some other form. In any event, be sure that your annotations are clearly set off from your draft introduction by making them in a different color from the original text. Here is an example taken from a proposal, showing the kinds of annotations that this assignment seeks from you:
When you have completed annotating each paragraph in your introduction, submit the annotated draft as your project assignment for this module.
SLP Assignment Expectations
Length: The written component of this assignment should be a copy of your draft introduction, however long that might be, with the required annotations either in the margin or in the text.
You may take the opportunity to revise and improve your introduction as you proceed.
Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity. We encourage you to use tools such as grammarly.com and proofread your paper before submission.
As you complete your assignment, make sure you do the following:
- Answer the assignment questions directly.
- Stay focused on the precise assignment questions. Do not go off on tangents or devote a lot of space to summarizing general background materials.
Your assignment will be graded using the following criteria:
- Assignment-driven Criteria: Student demonstrates mastery covering all key elements of the assignment.
- Critical Thinking/Application to Professional Practice: Student demonstrates mastery conceptualizing the problem, and analyzing information. Conclusions are logically presented and applied to professional practice in an exceptional manner.
- Business Writing and Quality of References: Student demonstrates mastery and proficiency in written communication and use of appropriate and relevant literature at the doctoral level.
- Citing Sources: Student demonstrates mastery applying APA formatting standards to both in text citations and the reference list.
- Professionalism and Timeliness: Assignments are submitted on time.
