OVERVIEW OF METHODS IN BUSINESS RESEARCH
Assignment Overview
In this assignment we will evaluate qualitative research methods in more depth. In the previous case assignment, you were expected to compare and contrast qualitative
and quantitative methodologies, as well as mixed method. In this Case Assignment, you will evaluate in more detail the purpose, distinctive features, advantages, and
disadvantages of two out of the four qualitative research methods in business research and sample populations described in the Module Overview.

Case Assignment
After reading the required background material and finding at least two other resources on your own, write a 5- to 7-page paper discussing the topic:

Qualitative Research Methods and Data Collection Techniques

In your paper, you should answer the following questions using your own evaluation and critical thinking.

Explain the purpose, features, advantages, disadvantages, sample populations, and examples in business research of TWO of the four qualitative research methods used in
business research.
Explain TWO data collection techniques of your choice. Examples of data collection techniques or source of evidence are interviews, participant observation and
fieldwork, direct observations, using documents or archival records.
If you were to conduct research, which qualitative research method and which data collection technique would you prefer to use and why?
Assignment Expectations
Length: The written component of this assignment should be 5-7 pages long (double-spaced) without counting the cover page and reference page.
