LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROCESSES TO ENHANCE WOMEN ACCESS TOP MANAGERIAL POSITIONS
Please edit per supervisor comments indicated in the attached final proposal document, the literature review and methodology should match the following comments:
My 2 biggest difficulties:
1) Literature review (prelim) – separate leaders and woman and then bring them together. it is difficult to keep the trial. when is it leadership when is it woman
2) research methdology – for such a study you cannot do a questionnaire. You have to do in-depth semi-structured/structured interviews and perhaps a few focus groups. Read the suggestions and relook that entire section please.
You have to collect data for PhD – literature informs your background, burning issues, gaps from there you collect data to fill the gaps
Imagine e,.g. 4 streams of data (literature review / case study from one particular woman’s journey / in-depth interviews / case study) – this gives you rich data that you can mine and really get to a meaningful (not pre-determined/assumed) framework.
The work will be done in Africa, South Africa and Zambia, in the public secor, government entities like the Government Technical Advisory Centre, National Treasury of South Africa and Zambia public sector.
