Finding scholarly sources for assessment 2
This assignment help will assist you with finding academic (scholarly) sources to answer the questions in the case study.
Make sure you check your course outline and website for the assessment details.
Before you start searching for academic (scholarly) sources to support your case study analysis, it is a good idea to plan your approach. Think about:
The 'how' can be tricky. Have a look at each of the case study questions and try to pick out the main ideas (key concepts) you want to follow up on.
Some possible key concepts you could use in your searches are:
|Bounded Rationality||Five Competitive Forces||Redundancy|
|Crisis||Job Losses||Six Steps|
|Decision Making||PESTLE||Strategic Management|
|External Environment||Rationale||Strategic Response|
Also think about how concepts may vary in the literature. People may not refer to ideas in exactly the same way. For example:
strategic response OR strategic plan OR strategic management
OR strategic program OR Six Steps
A table or mind map can be a good strategy for brainstorming:
|Strategic Response||External Environment||Risks||Planning|
Tip: Use a thesaurus to help you think of synonyms or alternative concepts
The Library catalogue can be a good place for finding academic (scholarly) books and journal articles.
