. The objective of
the research is to analyze the product or process in terms of the nine factors
influencing optimal timing of market entry explained on pages 95-99 of the text.
will use at least seven references,
such as periodicals, books, or journals to document their position. These sources should be less than seven (7)
years old. You will find that each
source may or may not discuss all of the nine timing-of-entry factors, but report
what you find. Internet sources are not acceptable; however, the
Internet may be used to locate a source.
All sources will be identified in a reference list, arranged in
alphabetical order and attached to the paper.
Using the course textbook as an example, a reference list entry would
mirror the first two lines of the Required Text paragraph above, starting with
Schilling. In the text of the research
project and in the concluding summary paragraph, the same book citation would
appear as (Schilling (2013)) located directly after the summary comment(s)
attributed to the text.
The research project will consist
of a paragraph for each source that summarizes your findings about each applicable
factor influencing optimal timing of entry and a concluding paragraph
containing the important points about each of the factors. Use proper in-text citations. Your personal opinion is not welcome. Projects will be graded on applicability,
content, proper identification of the factors relating to timing of market
entry and appropriate APA style and citations.
Completed papers will be in 12-point type, double-spaced, consisting of not less than five nor more than ten pages excluding illustrations, any cover sheet, and the reference list. The papers will be graded on applicability, content, flow, and the proper application of APA style and citations.
Research Presentation: Students will take about 15 minutes to present
the results of their research to the class.
Presentations will identify the appropriate factors from each source,
will contain a conclusion, and will be done in PowerPoint.
