▪ If you plan to use mixed methods, will they be sequential, concurrent, or

transformative? and Why?

o List the kinds of data/information that you plan to collect (e.g. testimonials, statistics, business/government reports, other research data, audio/video recordings, etc.). Also, consider two or three alternative ways you could gather data/information for this research.
