TASK: The research project executes the action research outlined in the research proposal. The report has two essential components i.e. a research report and reflective statement. The aim of the research report is to execute research into current Entrepreneurial and Innovation practices with a focus on the creation of a Blue Ocean offering that entrepreneurs face in their professional environment. This part must include primary evidence-based proposed business solutions and recommendations that address or mitigate the identified problem. The action research report must include a reflective statement to demonstrate and evidence the reflective understanding and self-evaluation of the student focusing on personal transition throughout action research, for instance at the beginning of the project, mid-way through the project and at the end of the project. This reflective statement should be supported with a digital portfolio of evidence in support of student’s submission. The word count for the combined report is 6000 words (+/- 10%).
