Research Design & Methodology

I'm looking for your help again. This time to write up the research design and methodology section for at least 2000 words.

I have a paper which I've attached which you can follow and summarize. Just make sure to include the reference list in Harvard style. You can use the references within the attached paper where applicable.

As for the content structure I'm looking for, it's as follow:

1) Introduction
2) Choosing an appropriate methodology
a. Epistemological considerations
b. What is qualitative research
i. Criticisms of qualitative research methods
ii. Justification for the use of qualitative research methods
c. The research design: case study method & interviews
i. Justification of using case study & interview methodology
ii. Limitation of both methodologies
d. The collection of data using both methodologies (how is this done)
i. Case study as a method for data collection
ii. Interview as a method of data collection
3) Ethical considerations
a. Principles of informed consent
b. Right to anonymity and confidentiality
c. Selection of participants
d. Interview process

The paper I'm writing on is on the application of change management model in assessing the change management progress within an organization. For this, I intend to utilize case studies, use the change model and see if the steps were applied and whether the change was successful. I also intend to utilize interviews to get more information about the different steps within the model.

You''ll find that the attached file already has most of the stuff so you can just summarize the important bits. Do let me know if this can be done. Thanks!
