In your case, you are to measure customer satisfaction and customer loyalty and determine the lack of relationship between customer satisfaction and loyalty. Therefore, you will need to give examples of how these two concepts are not related. To get started, it is important to understand the meaning of those two terms. Customer satisfaction basically means that the customer ...

Research Theories and the Components of Theoretical Schemes

Theory defines, assumes, proposes, explains, and predicts what the research outcome is likely to prove (right or wrong). It is an integrated body of propositions, assumptions, and definitions that are related in explaining and predicting relationships between two or more variables. Theory could be any of the following: deductive, inductive, grounded and axiomatic.

On the other hand, hypotheses are statements or assertions derived from theory that can be tested by scientific inquiry and that are capable of being refuted, and their tests may result in support or nonsupport for the theory from which they were derived.
