D. Proposed Structure of the GRP
TITLE OF GROUP RESEARCH PROJECT (GRP)
The GRP must contain the following components: An outline of the purpose and content of each section is provided below:
1. Introduction: The introduction should give the reader a clear idea about the centralissue of concern in your research and why you thought that this was worth studying. It should also include:
1.1 Definition of terms
1.2 Statement of the problem
1.3 Need & justification of the study
1.4 Research aims & objectives
2. Literature Review: The main purposes of your literature review are to summarize themajor published literature in the field of your study and to set your study within its wider context and to show the reader how your study supplements the work that has already been done on your topic. The literature review, therefore, may inform directly your research questions and any specific hypotheses that your research is designed to test. Your literature review should have the following sections and sub-sections
2.1 What is presently known about the problem?
2.2 Relevant & pertinent literature to the purpose of the study
2.2.1 Transformational Leadership
2.2.2 Servant Leadership
2.2.3 Authentic Leadership
2.2.4 Transactional Leadership
2.2.5 Motivation
2.3 Organization of review and its justification
3. Theoretical Framework: A theoretical framework is a collection of interrelatedconcepts, like a theory but not necessarily so well worked-out. A theoretical framework guides your research, determining what things you will measure, and what statistical relationships you will look for
4. Discussion of the Review Findings and Implications
4.1 What has been learned?
4.2 What are the gaps in knowledge?
4.3 Research questions, propositions or hypotheses
4.4 Limitations and any basic assumptions of the study
4.5 Ethical issues and Procedures how was consent obtained in the original studies?
5. Conclusion – This should be a conclusion to the whole project (and not just the researchfindings). Check that your work answers the questions in following table:
Do your Conclusions Answer These Questions?
Did the research project meet your research objectives?

Did the research project answer your research questions?

What are the main findings of the research?

Are there any recommendations for future action based on the conclusions you have drawn?

Do you have any overall conclusions on the research process itself?

Where should further research be focused? (Typically this will consider two points: firstly, new areas of investigation implied by developments in your project, and secondly parts of your work which were not completed due to time constraints and/or problems encountered.)

References – You should cite all external sources in your text by using APA format. It is a good idea to start your references section at the beginning of the writing process and add to it as you go along. It will be a tedious and time-consuming task if left until you have completed the main body of the text. If you do leave it until the end, the time spent on compiling the reference section is time that would have been better spent on checking and amending your report.
Appendices – Supplementary material at the end of a book, article, document, or other text, usually of an explanatory, statistical, or bibliographic nature. In general, appendices should be kept to the minimum. If they are so important that your reader’s understanding of the points you are making in the text makes their inclusion in the report necessary, then they should be in the main body of the text. If, on the other hand, the material is ‘interesting to know’ rather than ‘essential to know’ then it should be in the appendices.
Important Note: The above guide only contains a proposed format – it is not definitive. You must structure and justify your project to meet your research needs.
