For this assignment, you first will identify a topic of interest that you might want to pursue for research. Pick a topic for which you have several unanswered questions you would like to research. You are not tied to this topic when you reach the dissertation sequence, but it should be a topic that you find interesting now and relates to your program and specialization. Please make sure it’s a business-oriented topic. Next, conduct a literature search using the University’s library to locate two quantitative studies examining your selected topic and in which the authors present statistical findings. Quantitative studies will use statistical analysis as a methodology similar to what is discussed in the University’s School of Business Best Practice Guide for Quantitative Research Design and Methods in Dissertations. Once you have located your articles, you will prepare a short paper using the following format: Introduction to the selected topic of interest Brief summary of the first article Include research question(s) and hypotheses, if stated, and general findings. Include statistical tests used. Include the gaps in the literature which provided an incentive for the authors to pursue the topic. Reflect on whether the authors answered the research questions they set out to achieve. Brief summary of the second article. Include research question(s) and hypotheses, if stated, and general findings. Include statistical tests used. Include the gaps in the literature which provided an incentive for the authors to pursue the topic. Reflect on whether the authors answered the research questions they set out to achieve. Synthesis Specifically, compare and contrast the two articles, assessing the types of statistical methods and analysis used. Reflect on whether the authors created new knowledge previously known to scholars, practitioners, and society. Conclusion Assess what approach you might take if you were to conduct a study in this topic area. Are there other methods you may want to explore? Why or why not? Length: 3 pages not including title page and reference page. References: Include a minimum of 3 scholarly resources (This is only a minimum requirement. You should strive to include more than the minimum in all doctoral research).
