Struggling with Level 7 & Mgt Research Report


I'm all very new to this! 

I'm currently in the second year of my L7 HRM Diploma, and am struggling with my Management Research Report question. I have identified fairly broad topics and have had to revisit my subject area once already. I've currently refined this to two options: an analysis of the relationship between reward and retention (although I think this may be too broad) or looking at the effects/influences of E-Learning in L&D (something I know less about but it is a more concise) - I have thought about potentially exploring generational differences with this one....... 

Having always struggled with research where I set my own question (it almost cost me my A-Level history and my Master's degree....) I'm very concerned about it costing me my CIPD.

Just wondered if anyone had any good pointers for support or help?

Much appreciated!

  • As you can see from this, I'm so concerned that I've missed the 7 from Level 7 in the title! :)

  • Hello there,

    I completed a Management Research Report as part of my MSc a couple of years ago. I found it helpful to link my research to a specific issue that my organization was struggling with at the time. That allowed me to look at broad topics/models in my literature review, but kept the whole report more concise. Hope that helps, if you have any other questions feel free to ask!

    That's really helpful, thank you. I'm actually hoping to meet with our Learning & Development team to discuss what might be current and of use to them, which I can then relate back to the topic of Digital Learning. The organisation I work for have had a re-brand of their L&D function and as such, are reviewing the way in which some L&D is delivered. I've now scrapped Reward, so finger's crossed!

    Sounds like a good plan!
