Application of theories in project management | NURS 8210 – Transforming Nursing and Healthcare Through Technology | Walden University

 The importance of utilizing a theoretical framework in a dissertation study cannot be stressed enough. The theoretical framework is the foundation from which all knowledge is constructed (metaphorically and literally) for a research study. It serves as the structure and support for the rationale for the study, the problem statement, the purpose, the significance, and the research questions. The theoretical framework provides a grounding base, or an anchor, for the literature review, and most importantly, the methods and analysis. 

 

There are many theories that apply to project management as well as the dissertation process; therefore, it is important to understand the theories to determine which might most apply to your nursing practice and research. The specific theories and models utilized not only drive a study, but they also shape how the reviewer will interpret the results.

For this Discussion, you will explore various theories or models related to change theory and systems thinking in your healthcare organization or nursing practice. You will consider how the tenets of these theories might apply to your organization and practice, as well as consider how these theories might solve potential practice gaps.
