Instructions: An exhaustive review of the literature with a minimum of 30 pages

An exhaustive review of the literature with a minimum of 30 pages of content.
The literature review is the primary way in which this
connection is established. The review should provide a ‘360-degree’ view of the literature related
to the problem illustrating all sides of the discussion, not just perspectives that support the
researcher’s views or a single perspective. This is accomplished by including both supporting and
contradictory scholarly reference material. Begin this section with an introductory paragraph of
250 top 500 words that provides an overview or ‘roadmap’ of the main elements of the literature
• Leadership Practices Detailed discussion of the leadership practices related to the
problem being studied. 
• The Problem – Detailed discussion of the background general and specific problems. 
• Concepts – Detailed discussion of the concepts found in the research framework. 
• Theories – Detailed discussion of the theories found in the research framework. 
• Constructs – Detailed discussion of the constructs found in the research framework. 
• Related Studies – Detailed review of related studies presenting all viewpoints, not just
those that support the researcher’s views. 
• Anticipated Themes and Discovered Themes – Detailed discussion of anticipated themes
known prior to the study and discovered themes following the study. 
• The literature review should include only scholarly sources with at least 75% being
published within the last 5 years. 
• The literature review is intended to be exhaustive and may require more than the minimum
number of pages to achieve this goal.
• The literature review should compare and contrast different points of view. 
• Provide a one-page summary of the literature review to include a description of how this
section provides a foundation for the study.
