Hypothesis, Literature review, research design: Biases and Judgments

See attached files.

Part 1

For this assignment, use the same hypothesis and the Literature Review from your IP1 (Part 2) assignment and compose a theoretical framework (Step 4 of the Sekaran process). Use the components of a theoretical framework described in the Sekaran textbook as well as the examples contained in the textbook and in published research. Additionally, use sources available on the web, the library, and from the textbook to support your arguments. Remember to include these sources in the references section of your paper.

Part 2

Using figure 6.2 of Sekaran as a guideline, write a Scientific Research Design (Step 6) appropriate for the hypothesis and the Literature Review from the IP1 and the theoretical framework you have prepared for Part 1 of this IP2. Include the type of investigation needed, the study setting, the unit of analysis, and your recommended time horizon for the study. Also offer your assessment on the extent of 'researcher interference' (pp. 127-129) and any ethical considerations that may arise from the research design you are proposing.

Part 3

Think about the business decision you discussed in Unit 1's Discussion Board. Your supervisor had asked that you expand on your self-evaluation by identifying at least two judgment issues that you had to address. Write a memo to your supervisor describing these issues. Explain how you addressed them and the degree to which your decision was based on expedience and/or reflection. Potential issues include: bias, or ethical issues related to the availability heuristic, bias related to the representative heuristic, bias related to anchoring and adjustment, avoiding uncertainty, framing effects, positive illusions, egocentrism, and regret avoidance.

Your assignment should consist of an abstract, a short introduction, and conclusion in addition to the body of the paper using MS Word 2007.
