Research Topic: A Qualitative Case Study Impact of Project Manager’s Leadership Style as Related to the Success or Failure of a Project
Your literature review is the theoretical basis of your research paper. It establishes a link between your specific topic and what research has already been done about it. Your literature review should show how your research and/or findings contribute to the existing body of knowledge related to your topic. It should provide the reader with a holistic view of your research, showing a synthesis of all your references (as opposed to an annotated bibliography that details each source one by one). Your literature review should be 8 to 10 pages in length and be organized in logical way. Your literature should meet the following criteria:

  1. Contain 10 to 20 scholarly sources such as journal articles, books and papers.
  2. Contain research that is relevant and timely (resources should be related to your topic and most should be less than 5 years old, and from the United States).
  3. Provide a thorough summary and analysis of previous research about your topic.
  4. Be organized in a coherent way (theme, chronological order, order of interest).
  5. Identify gaps in the research or areas to expand the existing research.
  6. Contain and introductory and conclusion paragraph.
    It is recommended that you include other literature reviews in your research. You can often find them by including “literature review” as a keyword in your search criteria. This will also provide you with examples to model.
