To prepare for this Discussion, review Figure 2.3, “Case Study Tactics for Four Design Tests” on page 45 of Yin (2014), as well as Table 5.3, “Threats to Reliability” on page 203 of Saunders, Lewis, and Thornhill (2015), and consider the different data quality issues that can arise within the doctoral research process. Be sure to take into consideration such concerns as credibility, transferability, dependability, and confirmability.
By Day 3
Post an analysis of reliability and validity within the context of qualitative research data analysis. In your analysis, do the following:
• Identify sources for data quality issues that could negatively impact a doctoral research study.
• Explain the importance of reliability and validity within a DBA doctoral research study.
• Explain how reliability and validity can be achieved within the doctoral research process.
