To explore the impact of Path-Goal Theory on Manufacturing.

Order Instructions/Description


The paper must be between 15-20 pages, in APA formatting, and include an introduction, literature review, methodology of study, and conclusion. The project will be broken into component parts over the semester, and each student will work with the professor in developing the project. Please see the online file submission area for the grading rubric. Define a clear project topic Additionally, we will be exploring key issues three the ‘three lenses’ of biblical worldview in business: Work –  Community –  Stewardship –  Carefully consider the topics that interest you and areas that need further academic exploration. Additionally, be sure to utilize one of the leadership models explained in Leadership: Theory and Practice as a backdrop for your assignment. b. Create a thesis statement c. Identify and execute a research methodology d. Contains a solid literature review 10-15 scholarly sources Now that you know some of the history of your topic (literature review) and you have a solid research question that you’re trying to answer (thesis statement) it is time to work towards actually answering that question. Again, it is important that you are asking a question that is addressable  with the time and constraints of the project. For example, conducting a longitudinal (several weeks, months, or years) study of Fortune 500 leaders would not be addressable for a project of this size because of the timeline and the scale. However, conducting a case study of a small group at your workplace might be! The first step in the answering process is to determine what type of information is needed to answer the question, along with the best method for obtaining that data. This is called the ‘research method’. As you might imagine, there are a number of research methods, and not all will be appropriate for each question. This week you will work on determining the most appropriate method, so you can conduct your data collection over the next few weeks. e. Collect research data Now that you have researched your topic, developed a thesis, determined a methodology, it is time to conduct your research by collecting data. Depending on the methodology selected, you may be conducting survey’s, examining previously collected data, or conducting interviews. Now that you know some of the history of your topic (literature review) and you have a solid research question that you’re trying to answer (thesis statement) it is time to work towards actually answering that question. Over this week and next, collect your data. We will then move to the next phase of data analysis after our data has been collected. After we have data, we must determine what the means and how it informs the question that we’re seeking to answer in our thesis statement. Depending on the research methodology and the data collected, you will have will have to analyze your data in a specific way that fits those two pieces. While it may seem complicated, don’t over think it. If you selected a study that is addressable within the scope of this project, the data shouldn’t be too overwhelming.  I know this is a large and scary project, but it is meant to push you beyond your current level. I know you can do this! f.
