Identifying the Key Leadership Styles within Sustainability Success: A look at Germany

For the present order, I would like a high quality and knowledgeable/clear writing of my methodology process.
Moreover, the specialised writer is allowed to adapt according to the research practices and recommend statistical tests.

To have a better understanding to write this chapter, I sent you as attachment the following papers:

  • My research proposal, where you will find the big lines about my research procedure (please read the related chapter),
  • The university regulation and writing condition about the paper (including chapter 3 – “Methods & Procedures” on page 7),
  • A draft of the current literature review & bibliography (please cite in APA all extra sources that not listed in the bibliography!!!),
  • And finally, an exemple of the online questionnaire.

The chapter’s division should be the following:

  • Introduction,
  • Research paradigm,
  • Research design,
  • Data collection and sources, and
  • Statistical tests discussion (currently set to an ANOVA).

— Please leave a first introduction page to be written later
