Organization Study Project
Project 3: Organization Study Project
This project is about conducting a problem assessment and analysis of causes of the problem within an organization, using the knowledge you gained about research designs/methods in previous period. You can either choose one method (qualitative or quantitative). The paper should provide some background about the organization, identify a focal problem, propose and justify probable causes explaining why the problem exists, methods of addressing a focal problem, and include results of preliminary information collected. The requirement of this project is to collect and analyze some diagnostic evidence within this organization. For choosing a sample organization, it should be multicultural/global and can be a business or a non-profit, with employees from diverse cultures. It can also be a unit within a larger multicultural organization. The organization or unit chosen should have 5 or more employees and should not be the organization or unit in which you currently work to avoid any bias. Due to the compressed schedule of a semester, the data collected and results reported are only preliminary. Lastly, provide a brief reflection from a Christian perspective as regards your learning from conducting this organizational diagnostic.
Sample: For a qualitative method, three samples are required for an interview and five interview questions. For a quantitative study using a survey method, ten samples are needed for a basic statistical analysis.
Format: The length is between 3000-35000 words; double space, excluding references and appendix; APA style. Ten minimum academic references.
