Stage 2: Project Execution
Project Execution has the following tasks:
(i) The Literature Survey. Here the task is to locate and digest relevant and current literature relating to your topic. It is this task that will demonstrate your scholarship. By reading and understanding what other researchers have been doing, you learn more about your subject and it puts into perspective the work that you are planning to do. Outcome: Specialist subject knowledge. Result: Bibliography.
(ii) Writing the Literature Review. All the knowledge that you have gained in the previous task needs to be collected and presented as a coherent account together with your own critical appraisal. This will become your literature review which is marked specifically in your final report. It is well worth considering specifying your review as the intermediate deliverable. Deliverable: Literature Review.
