1) Because literature survey is a time-consuming exercise, a good, in-depth interview should suffice to develop a theoretical framework. Discuss this statement.
Literature survey is the documentation of a comprehensive review of the published and unpublished work from secondary sources data in the areas of specific interest to the researcher. For example, the library is a rich storage base for secondary data and researchers used to spend several weeks and sometimes months going through books, journals, newspapers, magazines, conference proceedings, doctoral dissertations, master's theses, government publications and financial reports to find information on their ...view middle of the document...
In depth interview should suffice to develop a theoretical framework but literature survey completes the flows from the documentation of previous research in the problem by integrating logical beliefs with published research, taking into consideration the boundaries and constraints governing both the situation. The purpose of both in depth interview and literature survey is to ensure that no important variable that has in the past been found repeatedly to have had an impact on the problem is ignored. The variables considered relevant to the study should be clearly identified and labelled. Finally, the relationship between the literature survey and the in depth interview provides a solid foundation for developing the theoretical framework. It is done through interrelationships among the variables that are deemed to be integral to the dynamics of the situation being investigated.
2) Good models are complex. What’s more, a good model should include both moderating and mediating variables. Discuss this statement.
A good model is based on a sound theory. A theory or a clear explanation for the relationships in the model is the last component of the theoretical framework. A theory attempts to...
