Due 1/25  8 p.m EST

Be on time & Original work

PLEASE READ!!

Data Attached

 

Earlier this week, you practiced using MANOVA models with SPSS and, ideally, used the Collaboration Lab to ask, answer, and otherwise address any questions you had. In this Assignment, you apply what you learned to answer a social research question using MANOVA.

To prepare

  • Review the datasets provided. (ATTACHED)
  • Construct a research question based on one of those datasets.
  • Pay attention to the assumptions of this test, and ask, “Does it make sense to interpret the mean of this dependent variable?”

The Assignment

Use SPSS to answer the research question you constructed. Then, compose a 1- to 2-paragraph analysis in APA format in which you answer the following questions:

  1. What is the null hypothesis for your question?
  2. What research design(s) would align with this question?
  3. What dependent variable was used and how is it measured?
  4. What independent variable is used and how is it measured?
  5. If you found significance, what is the strength of the effect?
  6. What is the answer to your research question?
  7. What are the possible implications of social change?

Be sure to include your data output with your analysis for an excellent APA-compliant write-up of a 6X3 MANOVA.

 

Assignment 2: Article Critique

ASSIGNMENT 2 ARTICLE CRITIQUE

The practice of quantitative research not only involves statistical calculations and formulas but also involves the understanding of statistical techniques related to real-world applications. You might not become a quantitative researcher nor use statistical methods in your profession but as a consumer, citizen, and scholar-practitioner, it will be important for you to become a critical consumer of research, which will empower you to read, interpret, and evaluate the strength of claims made in scholarly material and daily news.

For this Assignment, you will critically evaluate a scholarly article related to MANOVA.

To prepare

  • Search the  Library for a quantitative article that applies MANOVA.

The Assignment (You find the Article)

Write a 2- -page critique (Not including title & ref page) of the research you found in the  Library that includes responses to the following prompts: (USE SUBHEADINGS)

  • Why did the authors select MANOVA in the research?
  • Do you think this test was the most appropriate choice? Why or why not?
  • Did the authors display the results in a figure or table?
  • Does the results table stand alone? In other words, are you able to interpret the study from it? Why or why not?

Strategic it planning: your 3-step process

Strategic IT Planning: Your 3-Step Process

Introduction

What is a Strategic Plan?

It is a roadmap to achieving a goal. It may cover your entire department or responsibility or it may focus on a specific issue or element of your role. It can be long and involved or a simply one-page document that provides guidance and steps you need to implement to achieve a goal.

Making it Happen

There are a few things that are important to your success. While it may seem that developing the Strategic Plan is the hardest part, most plans fail because of the implementation. The key is to keep it small and be successful, then build on that success for the next initiative. Don’t bite off too much or try to be too ambitious.

• Take your time and keep it manageable

• Link your plan to your company’s strategy

• Justify your initiative and get buy-in and support

• Don’t re-invent, rebuild

• Go slow, manage change

• Set aside time from your operational responsibilities to make it happen

Without a Strategic Plan, you and your team won’t be effective and you won’t be able to get results, get attention and get ahead.

Why you need an IT Strategy:

Redirect from tasks to opportunities and result

• Switch from fighting fires to preventing fires

• Reduce risk with planning and a longer view

Most Strategic Plans never get written or they fail because they are too involved and complex. Keep them simple and use these three basic steps as your core approach. Ask yourself these questions:

1. Why do you need to do it? What is your goal?

2. What are the things you need to get done to achieve your goal?

3.  How can you make those things happen?

By following the 3 steps above and writing them down, you will have the outline of your Strategic IT Plan. Then, you establish the tactical things that will help you implement your plan.

Implementation Plan

Once you have established your strategic plan using the 3-step process, you need to develop your implementation plan. This includes getting approval and resources as well as the steps you need to take to achieve your strategic objective.

1. Set the objective for each step

2. Analyze internal/external factors

3. Develop solutions

4. Identify and eliminate barriers

5. Allocate resources (people, time, money)

6. Develop detailed tasks

7. Implement your plan!

Step Implementation

What Are The Roadblocks?

How Can You Overcome The Roadblocks?

What Resources Do You Need?

What Are The Timelines?

What Are The Main Steps To Implement Your Plan?

Business Model Innovation Proposal

This assignment has two components:

Discovering the Job

(A) Select a publicly traded organization (Wal-Mart) with which you are familiar (it can be your own company but one you have not yet used in this course or BMGT8130).

Business Model Innovation Proposal

(B) In section A, you identified and evaluated the job to be done for a target market segment or customer group. For section B, integrate the work from section A and prepare and submit a proposed business model innovation for this target organization. Define all of the proposed elements in the business model innovation, indicating the logic behind the element selection using a synthesis of the assigned readings and your research in support. Also, explain why this business model is innovative. Finally, explain the assumptions and trends upon which your business model innovation is based and how you will mitigate the limitations of the strategic assumptions in your model. As part of your paper, interweave some of the discoveries in preparing your post for this unit’s discussion.

  • Written communication: Must be free of errors, scholarly, professional, and consistent with expectations for members of the business profession.
  • APA formatting: Your essay should be formatted according to APA (6th edition) style and formatting.
