Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do I need to specify a theoretical framework?
A. You do not need a theoretical framework for the theory section of your assignment. It is just a review of the literature. This may mean when reviewing the papers you have reviewed some existing theoretical framework(s), which is good, as it is part of the literature. However, if you are struggling to find something like this, it is not required.
Q. What is the context of my study?
A. For those struggling with their context, try to avoid looking at something 'too' broad. Don't worry, or make huge changes at this point, just try to have a narrow focus, looking at a particular sector or industry. For example, if looking at SMEs or private sector organisations, then you might want to look more specifically at a particular type, e.g. Finance Industry or Accountancy firms. Make sure that you clearly articulate the rationale (reason) for your choice, and justify this rationale with references to academic sources.
