Analyze the use of the Sekaran diagram on the research process

See attached case file.

The assignments on research you have completed so far have taken you through a step-by-step process on how to develop and design formal research. In this capstone assignment, you will use all the knowledge and skills you have developed over the past weeks and apply it to a published research as part of a group activity.

This assignment consists of a fully APA Style 6th edition formatted paper in which the group analyzes a recently published business research study (a group choice) selected from the academic literature. The group analysis should be framed against each and every one of the steps presented in the Sekaran & Bougie (2010) research process and founded on the skills developed in previous assignments of this course.

The analysis itself should be a comparative assessment of how well the author (or authors) of the selected research have fulfilled (or not) each of the steps and sub-steps presented in figure 4.1 of the textbook (please note: it is highly recommended to review Chapters 4 through 6 in the Sekaran book for a refresher on the earlier research processes that have been covered in this course). The focus of the analysis should be on the research process, not as much on the research content itself. Be careful not to paraphrase what the author(s) has already stated in the published research. Again the analysis should be on assessing the adherence to the research process. Look at not only each step (and sub steps) but also how each step serves as a "stepping stone" for the next step. The interrelationships among the steps are also relevant to the analysis.
