took this course & defended their theses
with your groups, your tutor and his team
I'm an established researcher with a highly multi-disciplinary background that includes international business, education science, teacher education, and computer science. Most of all, however, I am fascinated by applying and teaching about research methods and academic writing.
Because, in the end, I do belief that writing a kick-ass thesis is key to having kick-ass career and life. At least if you do it the right way.
Therefore, after winning multiple research award and teaching awards myself, I decided to combine these passions to develop thesistribe; a program that will not only get your thesis done but that will transform you.
It is true that many students spend many months, often years, on their thesis. This is super costly, even if you do not have to pay for tuition.
However, a good quality thesis does not necessarily cost a lot of time. We can totally bank on the infamous 20:80 rule here (which says that 20% of your input will be responsible for 80% of your outcome).
So we just focus on the 20% that will bring your thesis forward and make a real difference. Certainly, this is the problem with the 20:80 rule - at the beginning, you just do not know what tasks are to be included in the 20%!
This is where our experience comes in. With a hundreds of theses supervised and thousands students more that received our help on special topics of thesis writing, we are confident to say that our Four Week Thesis Formula works and will also work for you.
Thesis supervision is both a highly complex and a highly underpaid job. That's a dilemma.
It makes it difficult to find academics that have real research experience (I do not talk about having a doctoral degree, I talk about real research that is read and cited by someone else, as indicated by Citation scores and the h-index). And then, if you win this lottery and your assigned/chosen supervisor is indeed an established researcher, the second criterion kicks in: can your supervisor actually teach you do become a good researcher yourself?
I (Dominik) have won multiple national and international research awards and have well-cited work to show; also, I've won numerous teaching awards. But more important than these juries' opinions are the opinions of the thousands of students who went through my programs before and successfully completed their thesis.
In business, the 80:20 principle (the Pareto principle) is the theory that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. The principle is named after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed in 1906 that 80% of Italy’s land was owned by 20% of the population.
The 80/20 principle can be applied to almost anything. In fact, it’s been used to describe everything from how societies are organized to how people use their time. But what does it mean for you and your thesis?
Simply put, it means that 20% of your efforts will produce 80% of your results. You can even get more excited about that, because you could apply the principle on itself—that is, you could focus on the 20% of the 20% that will produce the greatest effect.
“What about my supervisor?“, you might ask. Of course, your assigned supervisor could be your guide. But in my experience—and listening to thousands of bits of feedback I have received about this talking to students around the globe and across disciplines—there is only a slim chance that your assigned supervisor can fulfill that role.
This is nothing personal, this is systemic. Thesis supervision is not a task that is usually appreciated; many need to do it “for free” or even if there is compensation, it practically never is enough to cover the supervisor’s costs. So this is why supervisors have all the reasons to make minimal investments in your growth.
What is more, thesis supervision is a highly complex task. Realistically speaking, there are not many people around that can do it right. You need to be both a good researcher and a good teacher. And while both are available in heaps in higher education institutions, they are often not to be found within a single person.
That's why we are here and that's why we decided to fix this issue for as many of you as possible with our 30-day program.
