Each literature review should be at least 300 words. This component will ensure that you have an adequate background in the area you are about to further explore.
Brief Research Proposal: After conducting your literature review, you should select a theory or practice in knowledge management and propose how this may be applied to social media analytics. You should focus on finding a gap in an existing theory, and then propose a possible solution to this gap. You are not expected to conduct this research, only make an argument for it and provide an adequate blueprint/proposal for this work. Your proposal should be at least 1,000 words and leave the reader confident in the value and feasibility of your proposal.
