Another situation that can cause different outcomes for external validity is testing. While testing was also mentioned in the threats to internal validity, different testing situations threaten external validity. If a researcher administers a pre-test to the subjects the outcome may not be generalizable to the overall population who will not experience the
Request for products and services will act on the number of people needed in certain departments. Businesses can look to move into new markets if the business grows. Technology change can also act on the inside working arrangements, equipment leads to redundancies, new training may be needed and so on (Internet getting things at store and self-scan checkouts). If we look at Morrison their plans are that dependent workers will help define and deliver the organizations of vision and values to all Morrisons.
Shrieves Casting Company Mini Case I will discuss how organizations analyze financial data to decide whether to add new product lines or test if projects are profitable. Organizations have to analyze several different calculations to ensure the information coincides with the decision to begin projects. Corporations employ consultants that have more knowledge in the industry and help to navigate the risk associated with the different opportunity costs. Management must understand the risk associated with each decision to ensure shareholders receive maximum returns, the corporation is able to function properly, and the departments continue operating in areas that align with the organization. Cash Flow Estimation and Risk Analysis
(P1.3) Once the business strategy is formed, there are different techniques in developing the strategic plans of the business using various tools by the organization. These techniques show the strengths and weaknesses of the organization and as well as their opportunities and threats that are possible to the business in order to form an effective developed strategic plan during the process of operation. In this case, Nordstrom uses these types of tool in developing their strategic plans which are the BCG matrix and SOAR analysis. BCG matrix is the matrix which determines the level industry relative share of the industry and the business with the help of four dimensions. Strategic business plans are set by considering the growth rate of the industry and current situation of the business.
Industry Investigation As of right now, I am investigating the industry of marketing design and directing. I am not fully confident that this is the industry that I will want to pursue, but am considering. Marketing design and directing means that I would have the skills of a designer, but also able to apply those with marketing skills and become a visual marketing director. One industry that I am very interested in is American Greetings (corporate.americangreetings.com).
My responsibilities included research and analysis of case studies relevant to a new pricing implementation proposal we were working on for the national energy provider. My consulting experience complements the Creative Futures unit, as they both emphasise innovation in business processes and risk management. I am eager to study this unit because it will expand my knowledge on the development and incorporation of sustainable practices into current manufacturing and sourcing processes, which will be useful when I begin my career. Pursuing my interests, I secured an internship at a fashion event planning company, Stylo International. While working on the research and planning of the first Malaysia Fashion week, I attended a meeting with representatives from MATRADE, the National Trade Promotion Agency, which provided me with knowledge transferable to the Managing Fashion Projects unit in this course.
Over the years, numerous claimed scientific findings have been proven false by researchers who tried to replicate them, or to test their feasibility. In fact, it appears that claimed scientific findings are often just the result of chance or biases; no true relationship existing between the studied variables. The article explores the multiple causes of false positive findings, from sampling, to data analysis through research design and more. The author found that most claimed research findings are false because the majority of them are based on a single study. Major causes of false findings are biases that can be noticed from sampling, data collection, data analysis and even shifting of the initial hypothesis once the data are obtained.
In this section the author describes the theories that will support the analysis of information. In order to construct a theoretical background for the study the author chose to describe theories regarding the selection of countries. 5.1 Transaction costs theory Transaction cost theory was developed by Coase (1937) and then re-analyzed by Williamson (1979). The theory explains why companies exist and expand their activities to external environments finding out that ‘’A Transaction cost occurs when a good or service is transferred across a technologically separable interface’’.
