Organizational Leadership Study Select and read one qualitative observationally-based behavioral and/or interactionist research article from a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that is relevant to your topic and has the same basic format you would like to use for your study design. Use the Capella library to find the article. Use this article as a basis for designing your own observational research project that applies a theory pertaining to public safety leadership. Organization of the Assignment Organize your assignment into the following sections: Title Page Start your research design project with a simple title that very briefly characterizes your proposed project. (Your title should not be more than 10 words. Do not put quotation marks around or underline the title.) An abstract is not needed. Introduction • In APA, the introduction does not require a subheading because it is known to come first. • Begin the assignment with an introduction of the general topic that you will be studying. • State the theoretical and practical significance of your topic. Why is it important or useful to study this topic? • Indicate what you want to find out about the topic by offering your research question. • As you make your selection, include a leadership theory that will help you to define and test hypotheses about organizational public safety leadership. • Specify the potential contribution this project could make to the literature by briefly indicating the gap in knowledge that it will fill. • This section should be approximately 300 words. Literature Review • Briefly summarize the article you located earlier, focusing carefully on how the article uses an observational research methodology in relation to the project. • Show how the article with its theory and findings helped you to develop your research design. • This section should be approximately 500 words. Method of Research • Design your own study. • State the central research question in one sentence. What do you want to discover? • Provide a guiding thesis statement. • Describe the method of research you would use to carry out your approach. Be as precise and detailed as possible within the scope of this assignment. • Present the types of phenomena that you would observe. • Describe the sample you would observe and how you would conduct your observations and collect the data. • Present the measures you would use to analyze your qualitative and quantitative behavioral and interactionist observational data. • Show how you would protect the security and confidentiality of your sample of observed personnel by taking into account the elements of research ethics. Refer to the Ethical Principles page on iGuide (linked in the Resources). • This section should be approximately 500 words. Anticipated Findings • Suggest what you imagine you would find if you actually implemented the design. • How would you analyze the observational data using qualitative tools? • How would you present the observational data? • This section should be approximately 400 words. Discussion • Describe how you would use theory to explain the findings you would expect to obtain. • Describe what your research would demonstrate about the distinctive nature and challenges of public safety leadership as manifested in the leader-subordinate interactions you have observed. • Evaluate how interactions in the organization reflect key leadership challenges. • Identify at least one limitation of your own proposed project. • Present ideas for improving the leadership function that could be taken from your proposed research project. • Suggest a follow-up study to promote further beneficial research activity. • This section should be approximately 500 words. Be sure that your assignment includes reference to one peer-reviewed research article, and that the citations and reference comply with APA guidelines.
