2 REVIEWING LITERATURE TO DERIVE THE CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK This chapter has four broad objectives; namely to understand the research problem (Sections 2.1 and 2.2) to identify the knowledge gap (Section 2.3), to develop a theoretical framework for interpreting the findings (Sections Error: Reference source not found, 2.5, and Error: Reference source not found), and to conceptualise the research approach (Section 2.7). Specifically, in Section 2.1, the study briefly describes the research context in preparation for Section 2.2 in which we detail the research problem by outlining the challenges of implementing and managing local government turnaround strategies in Mpumalanga Province; its symptoms, root causes and consequences. In Section 2.3, we review methods, data, findings and conclusions on studies that have attempted to evaluate local government turnaround strategies. The discussion on leadership and its key components and attributes/ variables for managing local government turnaround is then introduced in Sections Error: Reference source not found and 2.5. The discussion proceeds to leadership framework for interpreting empirical findings in Section Error: Reference source not found. Section 2.7 provides a

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
