Workshop on Devising Research Papers at IIM Sirmaur

 

 

 

About the IIM Sirmaur

 

 

IIM Sirmaur is organizing a five-day Research Workshop on Devising Research Papers Using Multi-Criteria Decision Making and Qualitative Content Analysis from May 20 to 24, 2020. The proposed workshop is aimed to impart empirical (quantitative as well as qualitative) research skills to conceptualize and build a research paper on a relevant business and/ or policy issue.

 

The objectives of the workshop are to provide hands-on learning experience on conducting and recording focus-group discussion, preparing discussion transcript, thematic analysis of the transcript, and identification of most important concepts from the focus group discussion.

 

The workshop is also envisaged to provide the principle and working knowledge of Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) to identify the relative importance and structural relationship of the uncovered research themes.

 

 

Abstract

 

 

The proposed workshop is aimed to impart empirical (quantitative as well as qualitative) research skills to conceptualize and build a research paper on a relevant business and/ or policy issue. The objectives of the workshop are to provide hands-on learning experience on conducting and recording focus-group discussion, preparing discussion transcript, thematic analysis of the transcript, and identification of most important concepts from the focus group discussion. The workshop is also envisaged to provide the principle and working knowledge of Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) to identify the relative importance and structural relationship of the uncovered research themes.

 

 

Course content

 

1. Conceptual understanding of the focus-group discussion.

2. Identification of the critical research issues in the public-policy/management domain.

3. Conceptual understanding of Fuzzy ANP and identification of top 8-10 issues from the identified issues by the participants.

4. Software Training for MCDM (Super decisions)

5. Group assignment to the participants in a group size of 5-6 to conduct a focused-group discussion

on the identified most important topic.

6. Recording, transcript preparation, themes identification.

7. Explanation and calculation of inter-rater reliability of the identified themes using Cohen’s kappa and Krippendorff’s alpha

8. Identification of the reliable factors for the identified issue of discussion.

9. Mathematics of Fuzzy ANP.

10. Application of Fuzzy ANP on the identified factors.

11. Constructing the skeleton of a research paper using Qualitative content analysis and MCDM.

12. Research paper presentation.

 

 

Outcome

 

 

IIM Sirmaur will have copy-right on all the intellectual property generated during the tenure of the workshop. However, participants with significant contributions will be given due credit in case of the intellectual property outcome (Research paper, book, research report, etc.). The principal but the distant outcome of the workshop is seen as partially developed research papers (based on the number of groups formed). All the groundwork of the potential research papers will be done during the workshop and the development of the full manuscript will be carried out under the leadership of the coordinators in the time to come.
