Whatever case you construct, youshould explain why it is important for examining from an organizational communicationperspective. The focus of your study could be an issue, problem, or phenomenon like the onesdiscussed in Chapters 7-13 of the Munby and Kuhn textbook.
Introductiona. Creatively arrest the attention of your readers.b. Introduce the topic and purpose of your study (like the lead of a news story inwhich you answer 5Ws +1H): Present a thesis statement or state your researchquestion(s).c. Establish your ethos (what makes you a credible author of this study?)d. Connect with your readers. Say how this study might benefit them.e. Preview the structure of the paper.
Brief Lit Review (Alt. for, the Rationale for the study, or Significance of the Study)a. Start with an overview of your literature review.b. Review 2-to-5 academic journal articles (sum up and critique theirfindings/conclusions; the purpose of a lit review is to highlight what we havealready known about the subject, so you do not have to ‘reinvent the wheel’).c. Answer: Identify the knowledge gap (What do these studies leave you or yourreaders wanting to know more?), and how can your research fill that void?d. Sum up your lit review and argue for the significance of your research focus oryour research questions.
Theory and Methoda. Explain theories or theoretical concepts you are to use in this analysis.b. Explain how you have done the study (i.e., how did you gather, store, and analyzePage2‘data’ for your research?).Options:i. Fieldwork (observation and interviews with members of an organization)ii. Textual study (review/critique of a documentary/book on the organization)iii. Virtual ethnography—following the organizational events electronicallyincluding interviewing its members.iv. A combination of those described above (in i and ii).c. Briefly mention the theories or concepts you use in your analysis.
The Case Analysisa. This section is the main body of your paper.b. Present the case—the story—and systematically theoretically analyze it.c. Describe what you found and explain what they mean in theoretical terms (i.e.,connect findings to theories/concepts or literature you reviewed; use conceptslearned in the course to explain what you mean).d. Italicize or use boldfaced fronts for the course concepts you use in youranalysis. Make sure you define each concept briefly in a sentence or two.e. Thematize your analysis (discuss in terms of several themes, which you presentas sub-subheads or topic sentences leading the paragraphs of this section).
Conclusiona. Briefly summarize what you have written above.b. In a couple of sentences, reflect on your study’s limitations and how you triedto minimize their impact on your analysis.c. Identify what the key takeaways from this study are.
