Social change and the scholar-practitioner model are vital aspects of the Walden mission. The courses you take in this program are designed to support you in your quest for effecting positive social change and becoming a successful scholar-practitioner. Moreover, the Walden DBA independent scholar must show evidence of the potential positive social change benefits of their scholarly contributions to the field.
To prepare for this Discussion, reflect upon how your Doctoral Study concept has evolved since the beginning of this course and the ways in which you have built a solid foundation for your Doctoral Study project.
By Day 4
Post an assessment of the doctoral research process within the context of the scholar-practitioner model. In your assessment, do the following:
- Describe how your particular Doctoral Study might bring about improvement on management or business practice.
- Reflect on the most important components of the doctoral research process from your perspective as an independent scholar.
Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this weekâ€™s Learning Resources and one or more additional scholarly sources.
