Choose a construct or process, such as motivation, empowerment, isolation, goal-setting, problem-solving, and so forth, using your Wk 5 TV observation and your interview data set from Wk 6 as possible sources of context.

Find an archive of transactional documents that contain evidence of your chosen construct. Transactional documents may include minutes of meetings, conference programs, a collection of organizational mission statements, the evolution of a product, and so forth, but not scholarly articles.

Conduct an analysis of the documents of which you have chosen to obtain a deeper understanding, as well as the meaning of the construct that evolves from the documents.

Write a 1,750- to 2,100-word paper documenting your analysis that includes:

A description of the construct

A description of the document set you used

A description of the sampling method you used to choose a few documents to review

A description of the data analysis approach you used

The steps in your data analysis

The results of your analysis

Include responses to the following reflection questions:

What documents could you have used instead of or in addition to the ones you used?

How might the sampling method you used influence the results?

How did this experience compare to your analyses of observation data and interview data?

What have you learned about the stance of a case study researcher?

Format your paper according to APA guidelines.
