IT Project Management Human Factors and Communication

Instructions:You must write a research paper and/or a scholarly journal article that will contain a literature review as one of your parts of your research paper. In your research paper, you will use the literature as a foundation as well as support for a new insight that you contribute in your paper. The focus of a literature review, however, is to summarize and synthesize the arguments and ideas of the authors that you read in preparing to write your paper.Please use the Literature Review to set up your argument and guide the reader to a particular conclusion in their minds, before you even state the conclusion in your paper. Use the Literature Review as a tool to help you get your point across.Your assignment will be to prepare a research paper discussing, in depth, a subject related to one of the many Information Technology Project/Product Management topics covered in the world today (i.e. IT Project Management, Human Factors and Communication, Project Integration Management, Project requirements, Project Management leadership skills etc.). The paper should be from 2,000 to 3,000 words in length (8-12 pages) and contain a separate title or cover page and separate pages for the list of reference sources. The paper is expected to be authoritative, and based on at least 10 high-quality sources (i.e., no Wikipedia, newspaper, or web page citations allowed). Use library sources to find relevant journal or respected trade publication articles for your report. The majority of reference sources should be from recent publications no older than five years. Follow the APA format (6th ed.) for the paper and for all citations, figures, tables, and the list of references. You may include in your paper any of the articles assigned as readings, as well as any other reference sources encountered during the course. The style and content appropriate for an academic literature review can be seen in most scholarly journals found in peer-reviewed literature. Most articles will contain a section called, Literature Review. Look over a few to get a feel for the general style of writing expected. The report should exhibit graduate-level writing, in terms of grammar, punctuation, format, quality of analysis, coherence, insight, logical flow, and reasoning. The paper is NOT an essay, how to, or opinion piece, it is to be a research report based fully on facts and data derived from appropriate sources in the literature. Provide a reference citation for EVERY statement of fact you include in your paper. Do NOT string together direct quotes from reference sources to create a narrative in the report. More than three quotes within the paper will be too many. Write in your own words and include quote marks for ALL material copied from other sources. Remember, a literature review tells what other experts and researchers have discovered, NOT what you know or think. Save your own opinions about what all the facts mean for the conclusion of the review. The objective of the research paper is to enable you to conduct independent academic research in an area directly related to the course subject matter. Your efforts will generate a high-quality written report summarizing the results of your research into the current scholarly and relevant trade literature related to your chosen topic. 1. Title page and Abstract of the paper (Style according to the rules of the APA format.) 2. Final paper (Containing 8-12 pages, double spaced, 12-point font, one inch margins on all sides) 3. References – List of every reference source cited in the paper (and only cited sources), entered in correct APA format. At least 10 sources should be listed and cited within the report. Good Luck!
