    Concept Paper BLUEPRINT

    HOW TO WRITE YOUR FIRST DRAFT

    Below you will find 35 questions that cover the required subject matter of the Concept Paper & Chapter One of the dissertation proposal.

    1. Your first exercise is to answer each of these questions with one sentence. Write each answer as a simple declarative sentence. (Write answers to each of the 35 questions, before starting the second exercise.)
    2. Your second exercise is to expand each of the 35 sentences into a short paragraph. For each of the 35 questions, the one-sentence answer you wrote should become the topic sentence of a full paragraph.
    3. The third exercise is to expand each of the 35 paragraphs into as full a description or discussion as needed for the first draft of the dissertation proposal.
    4. Finally, fill in the BOLD template with the 35 or more paragraphs that have emerged from the third exercise.
    5. You now have a first draft of your concepts paper & Chapter One of the dissertation proposal.

    Concept Paper

    Introduction

    Question 1. What is the topic of your dissertation? Turn Over Rates

    Depending on the research, the rates of percentage can vary, especially within a certain timeframe in reference. Try and focus on the highest amount of turnover rates that (1) impact the organization to reach targeted performance goals (2) measurement of the rates over a period of time that shows disturbance in continuity of the organizations business activities.

    Question 2. (Move to Question 3 because you will answer this question last.) What are the 10 key points to be covered in Chapter One? This all depends on the actual findings from the research to the main key points covered in the researched turnover rates impacting the organization for targeted initiatives.

    Background

    Question 3. Why is your topic an important social concern? Why the high turnover rates in between Military and Civilians employees.

    In addition, the important social concern deals with the morale of employees as well as military employees, such as: (1) high stress environment (2) long work hours, and (3) higher than normal performance expectations. Focus on the causes to the social concern that results in (a) depression (b) health issue (c) conflicts at work - to further explain the background on why your topic is an important social concern. In any case, the difference between military and civilian's employees are significant due to their work conditions, expectations

    Problem Statement.

    Question 4. What is the broad general problem you are interested in? Explain the differences between Military and Civilian employee's turnover rates in Government Organizations.

    Consider the civilian employee's turnover rates, depending on the time span of reference in collective data, can increase more so than military - mainly due to the civilian easier to leave without major consequences compared to the counterpart within the study.

    Question 5. What is your narrow, specific research problem? Employee's turnover in Military and Civilians organizations.

    Yes, the focus is the "reason" and "end result" leading to employee's turnover in military and civilian's organizations, mainly due to the researched data as stated in response in #3. The narrow specific problem is that this epidemic occurs with the directive to why; by listing the undercurrent reason leading up to the exit / turnover result.
