Select at least two interviewees to use for the study. Consider having backup interviewees to use if needed.
By Day 7
• A two-paragraph summary of the process by which you selected your business problem, your interviewees (two or more), and how you will gain access to your participants
• A brief rationale for why you have chosen this topic and detailed information identifying why the interviewees are appropriate

Post an assessment of case study design versus phenomenological research design for doctoral research. Your assessment should include the following:
• Compare and contrast case study and phenomenological research designs, including commitments of time and cost for each design.
• Explain the benefits of using a case study for DBA doctoral research, including an example from scholarly research that supports your assertion.
