PROJECT
Introduction
• Identify a suitable topic for the project.
An competitive edge within global payment system: Ripple (XRP) – a case study
• Develop and submit a topic statement of about 500 words during Week 2. This outline should include the title of your project (selected from the project topics), a brief description of the topic, information about the organisation/industry, and describe your intended approach to address the project issue.
• Undertake reading to collect background information relevant to the topic and continue working on your project.
Literature review
• Collect background literature relating to your project topic. Search for articles in peerreviewed journals, reports (published by government, public companies or reputed consultants), or scholarly book chapters and articles from industry sources (such as publicly available industry magazines). You can use EbscoHost or other journal databases to identify relevant articles.
• Read the articles to learn more about the project topic and how it applies to your chosen organisation.
• Write a brief literature review in which you explain what the background literature says about the project topic, referencing the articles/reports/chapters you have read. This way you lay the foundation for your own project: you build on knowledge other people already have provided in their publications.
Research methodology
• Identify and access secondary data for the project in a systematic and ethical manner. (Students are not allowed to use primary data because primary data collection is time-consuming and involves complex research ethics requirements. This is not within the scope of the MBA project.)
• If secondary data is not publicly available, a consent form needs to be signed from the organisation that has ownership over the secondary data. The latest date to submit the consent form is the final assessment date.
Presentation of the findings
• Analyse the data to identify findings in relation to your project topic.
• Note down your findings. Develop tables/figures to help display the findings, as appropriate.
• Once you have findings for your project, sit back and consider what those findings mean for you, for the chosen organisation and, if relevant, for the industry. Reflect on the findings in relation to yourself, your organisation, and industry.
• Note down the reflections. These reflections about the organisation and industry provide a link from the findings to the implications and recommendations of your study. 5. Concluding the project report
• Write a draft project report in report format. Make sure to include an ‘Implications and recommendations’ section as well as a ‘Conclusion’ and ‘Executive summary’.
• Re-work and improve the project report. Remember to pay attention to appropriate referencing.
• Attach relevant appendices to your project report.
RESOURCES:
• EbscoHost’s Business Source Corporate Plus journal and newspaper resources
• IbisWorld / Marketline company information
• Proquest corporate eBook collection
