Following questions can help you write/structure your personal reflective statement:

 What is the focus of your completed Project? Why do you feel that, from both an

academic and practitioner perspective, this has been an area worthy of

36

investigation?

. In what ways did your critical review of the relevant literature modify or otherwise

develop your first thoughts about the topic – and perhaps your overall research

strategy?

. What methodological issues have arisen in your Project and how have you

addressed them – or how would you address them now?

. How did your answers to Question 2 and 3 influence:

a) your choice of research methods

b) your data analysis

c) the conclusions drawn from your analysis

. What have you learned from undertaking this research and how will you apply this to

your future work in HRM?

. If you were to undertake this Project again what, if anything, might you do differently

and why?
