Mini Meta Analysis

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Conduct a mini-meta-analysis. There is really no such thing as a mini-meta-analysis, but you don't have time to conduct a full meta-analysis. Anyway, with the topic of your choice, find 1-3 articles (WWW or Cybrary). Using information from the 1-3 articles, estimate the effect size of a variable. So, if you find more than one article (try your best), your articles will have to concern the same subject and the same variable, and at least part of the studies involved will need to examine differences between means. As an example, you may want to look at evaluations of Treatment X. So you will need to find articles that evaluate Treatment X, using the same groups and using the same outcome measure. So, your estimate of effect size might be the difference between the treatment group and a control group in terms of an outcome measure. Try your best to find more than one article.

A Theory of Employment Systems - Micro-Foundations of Societal Diversity
Marsden, David
Subject: Economics and Finance, 1999
"'A theory of Employment Systems' explains why there are such great international differences in the way employment relations are organized within the firm. It takes account of the growing evidence of international diversity. It sets out from the theory of the firm first developed by Coase and Simon, and explains why firms and workers should use the employment relationship as the basis for their economic cooperation. The originality of the employment relationship lies in its flexibility. It gives managers the authority to organize work, but it also establishes limits on employees' obligations."
