The analysis itself should be a comparative assessment of how well the author (or authors) of the selected research have fulfilled (or not) each of the steps and sub-steps presented in figure 4.1 of the textbook (please note: it is highly recommended to review Chapters 4 through 6 in the Sekaran & Bougie book for a refresher on the earlier research processes that have been covered in this course). The focus of the analysis should be on the research process, not as much on the research content itself. Be careful not to paraphrase what the author(s) has already stated in the published research. Again the analysis should be on assessing the adherence to the research process. Look at not only each step (and sub steps) but also how each step serves as a "stepping stone" for the next step. The interrelationships among the steps are also relevant to the analysis.

The focus of the analysis should be on the research process - the analysis should be on assessing the adherence to the research process. The interrelationships among the steps are also relevant to the analysis.
Aim in framing the core interrelationships between the research steps and sub-steps as phases, in which, the overall vantage point to accounting for pertinent parts necessary for the next step (phase). In doing so, the outcome is more concrete to completing the final write-up analysis on research and case analysis. In the case study, the core elements reflect the main research question or theory that should entail a continuing theme throughout the gathering ...
The review into procedural steps in creating a research project that outlines interrelationships between the cause and initial theories at play to either supporting the hypothesis.

1. As you research Whole Foods and their specific strategies what struck you as positives and/or negatives. Are there certain strategic elements that were particularly insightful about what Whole Foods does? Are there any glaring weaknesses that could jeopardize their success?
2. The formulation of strategy must take into consideration the dynamics of the industry and its competitors. Whole Foods has two main competitors, Fresh Market and Trader Joe's and others as well, as identified in the case. How has Whole Food's strategy been influenced by these competitors?
