Answer each question with at least 200 words citation and references:
1. Identify at least one new financial instrument that has become popular in the recent past for either investors or issuing corporations. Explain why you think it has become popular. Is the newly gained popularity merited? Why or why not? Could ABCTech use this instrument to be more successful? Why or why not? (See “DBA-820 Integrated Case Study” in the Class Resources.)
2. Whether addressing a problem presented in a created case study or pursuing theoretical or practice-based research, the problem space is a way to help you establish boundaries for the literature review so that you have a clear idea of what to include and what to exclude. The topic, the problem statements that other researchers have defined, the approaches that other researchers have taken, and/or the literature regarding the practice within an organization or setting all constitute the “problem space” for a study. What needs to be understood is the result of the analysis of the literature review within the problem space, and the problem statement expresses how the proposed study will address what needs to be understood. An argument supporting the need for the study is also formed from the results of the analysis of the literature review. The description of the problem space and the problem statement will be refined over time as you read and synthesize additional information.
Using your knowledge to date from RES-815, RES-820, and your independent reading in your field of interest, briefly describe the problem space and argue the need for your proposed study. Then, draft an potential problem statement that emerges from the problem space and the need for the study. Paste the argument supporting the need for the study into the “Background of the Study” section of Chapter 1 and the problem space description and problem statement into the “Identification of the Problem Space” section of Chapter 2 in the Dissertation Template (available on the DC Network).
Save the template with your work to your computer using the naming convention DissertationDraft.LastName,FirstName.Date, and attach the saved document to your initial post in the forum.
Critique the responses of your classmates, and revise your own work based on the feedback from classmates and your instructor.
Paste the revised argument supporting the need for the study, the revised problem space description, and the revised problem statement into the relevant sections in the Dissertation Template as noted above.
Save the revised template with your work to your computer using the naming convention DissertationDraft.LastName,FirstName.Date, and attach the saved document to your final response in the forum. Note: The dissertation process is an iterative process. Each segment of the dissertation will undergo several reviews and revisions during the process.
