In preparation for your coming literature review, you will need to develop a good research question that
includes both diversity and leadership elements. This question must be grounded in a real-world problem,
and it must be a logical next step from the existing research.
Feedback reflection Refer to previous assignment feedback from this or previous courses. Describe what
you have learned from this feedback, what you still need to learn, and how you can use the feedback to
refine your future assignments.
Question proposal State the research question you intend to use for the literature review (Module 5). The
question must include both diversity and leadership elements. It must connect to a specific problem of
practice, and it must (to the best of your knowledge) be a logical next step from existing research. For this
assignment, provide a brief supporting statement for your question (one to three sentences). You will not be
graded on the quality of your question or supporting statement, provided it demonstrates you have begun
the process. You will be expected to incorporate feedback into your final literature review.
