Introduction Psychological research and its findings have profound impact on people, relationships, and institutions in our society (Willig, 2013). However, as any other study, psychological researchers are faced with enormous limitations including inappropriate designs or methodologies due inadequacy of professionals (Wang, et al., 2015), geographical differences that impacts on generalizations (Smith, 2015), and time pressure that negatively affects the quality of a research (Punch, et al., 2014). Language barrier and lack of literature or poorly done review are other factors that affect psychological research (Willig, 2013). Limitations Limited number of professionals in the psychological research is one of the key limitations to this field of study. Psychological research depends on observations, experimentation, and evidence, hence the need for critical methodological designs (Shipman, 2014).
Furthermore, in case of a complex model, covariance-based approaches require an enormous sample size for precise estimations. In addition, these approaches are not capable of achieving convergence as the number of factors and indicators increase (Chumney, 2012; Lowry & Gaskin, 2014). Although, PLS is known to be a robust method when above-mentioned conditions are satisfied, its main weakness is originally it does not provide the overall goodness of fit statistic for theory testing and confirmation. Therefore, a global measure of model fit is not possible to be given by PLS estimation (J. F. Hair Jr et al., 2010; Hair et al., 2011; Tenenhaus, Vinzi, Chatelin, & Lauro,
"2 [6-pt scale].There are too many variables, either in terms of the political or economic environment of the country where a partner operates or the considerations of your partner when you put it together, and the price you have to pay to get into those partnerships. You put all that together, and you 're paying quite a lot. The returns are volatile."

The reason #5 of Kotter’s process would be a challenge goes hand in hand with reason #2. There are obstacles in place at several levels organizationally and across directorates that can include lack of buy in at all levels, lack of cooperation between directorates, and potential statutory or regulatory obstacles that I am unaware of. 17. The Coast Guard needs to standardize and enforce spend plans and eliminate spend down. Spend down has proven to be a wasteful, inefficient, and costly way to manage Coast Guard funds.
During the detail design phase it is very difficult to make a rational decision on the design of the drone because it depends largely on what are the quality controls of the Drone to be produced. One of the most important points of the company is that the company's investment revenue be greater as possible and this is directly proportional to a lot of non-technical issues that hinder the use of standard design
3.2 Industry conditions (Porter 's Five Forces Analysis) Five forces which would impact an organization 's behavior in the market. Understanding the nature of these forces provides organizations the required insights to enable them to formulate the appropriate strategies to be successful in their market (Thurlby, 1998). 3.2.1 Threat of new entrants (high entry barriers) High capital investment for competitor entry into telecommunication industry. Companies in this industry maintain development, spend fairly large amount of capital on network equipment and incurred high fixed costs. Besides, technologies are also considered as barriers for new companies to enter the market.
In our game, lack of communication between supply chain parts and unknown customers’ demand are the main reasons of fluctuations in the effective inventory level. To mitigate these problems company should develop perfect communication strategy because with the help of the better communication between supply chain stages inventory holding cost and penalty cost can be minimized. In addition, if supply chain parts avoid updating demand forecast in each stage, probably there would be low cost because fluctuations can be decreased. If we were allowed to communicate with supply chain partners, there could be relatively low cost because we could arrange our order numbers, inventory level with the help of the effective information
This has been one of the most controversial issues under researches topics in management sciences (Colella, Paetzold, Zardkoohi, & Wesson, 2007). The complexity of pay secrecy can be broken down into few critical issues: the issue of information availability, employer restricts
Threat of Substitutes or Substitution (High) Substitutes are a significant concern for Chipotle. The following external factors for Chipotle make the threat of substitution a high force: • High substitute availability (High) • Low switching costs (High) • High performance-to-cost ratio
12. 2 Occupational Stress (OS) The prevalence of occupational stressors is widely acknowledged in service sector especially in hospitality industry (Kim et al., 2007; Wildes, 2007). Long and anti social working hours, lack of job control, and a high and conflicting work demands are but a few of the frequently cited causes (stressors) of occupational stress (Faulkner and Patiar, 1997). A historically high employee turnover rate (Wildes, 2007) also means that employees are often over stretched in understaffed situations (Rowley and Purcell, 2001), thereby amplifying stress levels (Ross, 1997). Left unchecked, prolonged stress has been found to be detrimental to both the well-being of employees and organization (De Croon et al., 2004).
