I am studying supplier performance management, in short, and more specifically the impact of post-receipt activities on performance calculations. If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire which has been tailored to capture the specific elements necessary to understand the desired phenomenon here. The questionnaire will also seek additional volunteers to participate in an interview. [Interviews will be audio recorded for transcription to allow for accurate reflection and enhanced analysis of the content.] Data collected will be maintained by the research team.
Participation is completely voluntary and confidential. Moreover, if you agree to participate, you do not have to answer any questions that you do not wish to, and you can withdraw from the study at any time. All information will be kept confidential and secure. The results of the study may be published or presented at professional meetings, but your identity will not be revealed.
Thank you for your consideration. If you would like to participate, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon receipt of your email you will be provided an Informed Consent document to review and sign. Once the Informed Consent document is returned, the questionnaire shall be distributed to you to begin the research project.
Yes, I have an Informed Consent document and a questionnaire. Both are ready to go; however, in adherence to the procedures and requirements of the IRB as established, this is the first step, to openly seek participants and have them register per say with me to obtain such.
Excellent idea for the LinkedIn post. I will look into that in the morning.
