I would like topic(s) related to DBA with a specialization in Project Management; identify resources and search engines intended to help you think about the topic. Most of the resources should be contemporary, published within the last five years.
Based on your observations and/or interests (allowing you to pick my topics), look through journals in your field to help you choose 2 to 3 general potential topic areas to study. This does not mean that you should pick a specific area with a research question in mind. Instead, identify broad areas of interest from which you could derive a research topic after completing a literature review. The literature needs to support the need for further inquiry into a topic vs. just basing it on your interests.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 10, 2019, 8:28 am ad1c9bdddf
