Questions I currently have

The questions I currently have about my study are:
  • how to link the various facets of the dimensions of engagement that I've identified to the social capital dimensions that Nahapiet & Ghoshal identify.
  • if this structure for the theoretical framework is okay, then I have to write why it's okay, which has something to do with outcomes of engagement. Good outcomes create and maintain social capital.
  • which facets overlap and how do I write them so that the reader (especially my supervisors) understand what I mean?
  • how to explain the value that accrues from engagement so that practitioners understand its value and want to engage in order to use that value in their IT projects.
