*Adapted from Literature Synthesis Matrix by Jennifer Lim, lecturer at TAR UC

Review of multiple articles in your KoP leads to these consistent THEMES – for this example there are 4. Typically you will have a range of 3 to 6 themes.

This learner has included the names of the author(s) and the year. This provides all information needed for in-text citations.

Expect BLANK spaces in the Matrix, not all articles address every theme.

The comments in the matrix are pulled from each articles “Findings” in the KoP. Look at how these comments speak to the same THEME – Definition of PLE but with different wording.
For each article, start with the primary theme from the KoP template. Next, see if other article findings may be applicable to other themes.

    DOCTOR OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM

    Guidelines

    Within the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program are 10 professional doctorate
    specializations. Each specialization has programs of research, or research topic areas, that are
    appropriate and relevant to its field and that are represented within that specialization by
    faculty who have an interest and expertise in those topics. The following document details the
    programs of research for:

    • accounting
    • business intelligence
    • finance
    • global operations/supply chain management
    • human resource management
    • information technology management
    • leadership
    • marketing
    • project management
    • strategy and innovation

    Definition of Research

    Consistent with the educational philosophy to prepare learners to have an immediate impact in
    the work place and community, Capella University provides a doctoral educational experience
    that supports learner development within the scholar-practitioner model. As scholar-
    practitioners, Capella doctoral learners conduct authentic research. Authentic research is
    actionable research to advance and/or apply theory to solve social problems. More specifically,

    • Capella describes doctoral-level investigation in the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
    programs through the utilization of research which extends theory and uses new
    knowledge to solve a real-world problem.

    • Capella describes doctoral-level investigation in the Professional Doctorate programs
    through the utilization of research which applies existing theory and knowledge to solve
    a real-world problem.

    • Capella University is committed to its institutional responsibility to respect and protect the rights
    and welfare of human participants and their data in research. Doctoral learners are expected to
    demonstrate the highest standards of ethical conduct in all phases of their doctoral research
    and scholarship.

    DBA Research Philosophy and Framework

    The research philosophy of the DBA program emphasizes useful applied business research with
    a scholar-practitioner focus. The DBA philosophy toward learners’ research is to promote
    research that identifies and addresses specific problems, opportunities, or challenges in the
    practice of the disciplines of specialization within business administration. Within this
    framework, the DBA embraces both quantitative and qualitative methodologies.

    The culminating experience is an applied business research project that aligns with this
    philosophy.

    BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE

    Guidelines

    Business Intelligence (BI) comprises the set of strategies, processes, applications, data,
    technologies, and technical architectures that enterprises use to support the collection,
    analysis, presentation, and dissemination of business information. BI technologies provide
    historical, current, and predictive views of business operations. Common functions of
    business intelligence technologies include reporting, online analytical processing, analytics,
    data mining, process mining, complex event processing, business performance
    management, benchmarking, text mining, predictive analytics, and prescriptive analytics.
    BI technologies can handle large amounts of structured and sometimes unstructured data
    to help identify, develop, and otherwise create new strategic business opportunities. BI
    technologies aim to allow for the easy interpretation of these big data. Identifying new
    opportunities and implementing an effective strategy based on insights can provide
    businesses with a competitive market advantage and long-term stability.

    The DBA Business Intelligence specialization faculty suggest learners use this information as a
    guideline. Research topics must be approved by the appropriate faculty as specified in the
    program version. The following perspectives and topic areas provide areas of consideration.

    Identifying an Issue, Problem, or Opportunity

    Researchers seek to respond to business intelligence problems that need to be solved.

    PROJECT MANAGEMENT

    Guidelines

    The DBA Project Management specialization addresses the discipline of initiating, planning,
    executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet
    specific success criteria. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique
    product, service, or result with a defined beginning and end (usually constrained by time,
    and often constrained by funding or deliverable) undertaken to meet unique goals and
    objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value. The temporary
    nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are
    repetitive, permanent, or semipermanent functional activities to produce products or
    services. In practice the management of these two systems is often quite different, and
    requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.

    The DBA Project Management specialization faculty suggest learners use this information as a
    guideline. Research topics must be approved by the appropriate faculty as specified in the
    program version. The following perspectives and topic areas provide areas of consideration.

    Identifying an Issue, Problem, or Opportunity

    Researchers seek to respond to project management problems that need to be solved.
    Applied research emphasizes practical problem solving. Applied research in project
    management seeks to reveal answers to specific problems related to action, performance,
    or policy needs.

    Theoretical Perspectives

    • construction project management
    • software project management
    • technology project management

    information, seeking innovation opportunities, developing breakthrough strategies and
    business model design, and creating an organizational environment that enables innovation
    and change. Learners explore trend analysis and foresight planning; processes for identifying
    risks and innovation opportunities; and strategies for building continued organizational
