This assignment requires that you conduct separate interviews with 2 people you respect in the world of marketing. A strong suggestion is to pick one person that you do not know and try to contact them to complete the assignment. You may pick people from any walk of life whose skill and approach to marketing you admire.
This is a research assignment that will require you to follow research protocol including giving research participants an understanding of what the purpose of the research is, how it will be used and how it will be protected. The interviews should be recorded using zoom, other video/audio formats or an audio file. You will be given an “Informed Consent” script to use in the first class.
Please use these questions in your interviews. In each interview, you must ask these 6 questions and may also ask follow-up questions.
How important have teamwork and communication been to your success?
What are other skills that are important when working in a team (e.g., problem-solving, decision-making, conflict resolution).
What do you wish you knew earlier in your career about teamwork and communication?
How important is trust in your work?
How do you build trust and how do you recover it if it gets lost?
What is one habit you would recommend that a new Masters in International Marketing graduate develop about teamwork and communication?
Each completed and recorded interview should be uploaded to this assignment page.
After completing the interviews, you will conduct your own analysis of the interviews. The best papers will seek to identify themes that are consistent across the interviews and, based on your own lived experience and challenges in Teamwork and Communication, identify the insights or personal implications you draw from the interviews. You may also find thematic divergence and provide your hypothesis for why the interviewees’ responses differ.
Furthermore, the best papers will integrate your own secondary research and relevant key concepts from the course materials we will cover. Finally, each paper should have a conclusion that reinforces your main points and ties your learnings together.
Your paper should be written as a research paper, including primary and secondary research, and following all APA v7 guidelines.
The last step in this assignment is to share your findings in a 2-3 minute video. Include the highlights of your research and what you have learned from the interviews and about yourself.
Assignment Deliverables:
Research Paper 2 pages (min) to 4 pages (max). Be sure to include the recorded interviews with your submission.
Note: Interview notes, references, and cover page are not included in the page count.
2. Summary Video of 2-4 minutes. The video may be in .mp4 format or as a YouTube link. Any other format will not be accepted.
Grading Criteria (what constitutes a good assignment?):
This assignment is an opportunity for you to flex your networking muscles. You are encouraged to find and interview 2 people whom you may not know. Be sure to follow proper research protocols as outlined above.
The best papers will seek to identify themes that are consistent across the interviews and, based on your own lived experience and challenges in Teamwork and Communication, identify the insights or personal implications you draw from interviews. This is a combination of research and reflection.

Provide feedback to two of your classmates about their identified variables; explain why you agree with the variables, research question/s, and hypotheses stated.

1. The research topic regards the impact of childhood trauma and how it relates to those with mental health issues in adulthood. “This study compared the prevalence of childhood trauma recorded in an individual’s clinical notes to those ascertained with a structured validated questionnaire.” (Rossiter, A., Byrne, F., Wota, A. P., Nisar, Z., Ofuafor, T., Murray, I., Byrne, C., & Hallahan, B. (2015). The article states that most research done in the past involved childhood sexual trauma, but has not studied other forms of childhood trauma in detail.
2. The dependent variable could be the answers to the questionnaire. The participants’ answers will vary, and they are being measured against the other answers to come to a conclusion. The independent variable could be the questionnaire itself, as the questions do not change based on other variables. “Our principal hypothesis was that the rates of disclosure ascertained using a structured questionnaire (CTQ) would be significantly higher than those reported by individuals attending their treating mental health team.” (Rossiter, A., Byrne, F., Wota, A. P., Nisar, Z., Ofuafor, T., Murray, I., Byrne, C., & Hallahan, B. (2015). The hypothesis also states that patients with personality disorders may have a higher rate of childhood trauma, and whether or not they disclose their trauma.

Brief Review of Research of the Research Topic
The US has the highest incarceration rate in the world. Much of the research shows that there are many more individuals incarcerated that have a diagnosed mental illness than there are from the general population that is incarcerated (Domino et al., 2019). When released from prison, people with serious mental illness face many challenges entering back into the community than those from the general population (Domino et al., 2019). Many of these individuals do not receive the mental health care or treatment that they need. In addition, they do not receive appropriate transition planning.
Identify/list the variables (independent and dependent), research question/s, and hypotheses
Independent
Timely mental health services among people with severe mental illness who were released from prison.
Dependent
Arrests, jail time, and any imprisonment.
Research Questions
What is the effect of timely mental health treatment on incarceration among those brought to care through the provision of expedited Medicaid?
What would be the average effect of providing timely mental health treatment to the full population of adults with severe mental illness released from prison?
Hypotheses
The timeliness of mental health services has a significant effect on rates of incarceration.
Explain how the variables, research question/s, and hypotheses align in the study
The above variables, research questions, and hypotheses relate to the study because the researchers want to know if timely mental health services after prison have any impact on future arrests, jail time, or imprisonment.
Explain the purpose of the variables, research question/s, and hypotheses in research
The degree to which the answer differs reveals information about the variability in the effect of treatment in this population. The researchers conducted several stratified analyses to examine how treatment may interact with criminal justice and social characteristics resulting in heterogeneous effects.

Critical Review Purpose and Audience When you write an essay that reviews the t

Critical Review
Purpose and Audience
When you write an essay that reviews the text of an author, your purpose is to evaluate the potential of their work to the community for whom the text is relevant. For example, if you are writing a critical review of an article in physics, then your commentary should be directed to members of that scholarly community. In writing your critical review, you are sharing your assessment of the text (whether it be an article, book, or book chapter) and supporting your evaluative position with evidence that is valued in the scholarly community. In other words, your critical review should speak into the issues and concerns of the academic community for whom you are writing.
In general, there are many ways that you can write a critical review, but the most common is to:
Provide an introduction that mentions the author and title of the work, along with a brief interpretive summary of his or her main point(s).
Present what you believe are the most important strengths and weaknesses of the text and explain why you believe they are positive or negative (remember, your explanation should be based on disciplinary information and evidence). Use examples from the article to support your claims, and add a statement about why you think this criteria matters.
Therefore, the outline for the Critical Review is:
Introduction
Strengths
a. Key Criteria
b. Key Criteria
Weaknesses
a. Key Criteria
b. Key Critera
Conclusion
You do not need to come up with criteria about every aspect of the text, but focus on a select few that you believe need addressing. You should write the critical review as an argument; that is, you must be able to present your evaluative claims convincingly. You should use examples from the text itself or draw from other disciplinary sources (class discussions, notes, or readings) to support your claims about the value of the text.
This assignment will help you learn to recognize an author’s claims and the logic of his or her argument. It will also help you to begin to position yourself in relation to information in your major as you find yourself agreeing or disagreeing with certain information or aspects of information over others. Finally, the critical review will help you begin to understand that in order to improve upon our current understandings of phenomena, scholars must dismantle the work of others to create new ways of thinking (theories, methods, etc).
For the purpose of this assignment, you should assume that your readers have not read the original text. Convince them that your evaluation is plausible by presenting enough detail and explanation that they can “see” the evaluation of the text as you do.
Requirements
Your critical review should be 3 pages, typed, double-spaced, using 1″ margins and 12 point font. Add the course name, instructor name, your name, and date at the top (single-spaced). Please add page numbers and a Works Cited page.
In addition, address all of my comments from the Rough Draft assignment. Let me know if you have questions about this feedback, well in advance of the final due date.
Use subheadings throughout the essay to guide the reader, and make sure your paragraphs all include a topic sentence and supporting sentences.
See a Sample Critical Review here.
And here is a list of Criteria for the Critical Review Assignment.
Grading:
This paper will be graded based on the following criteria:
Organization: Is the review organized logically? Is each section clearly marked with good transitions (or headings and/or subheadings)? Does the conclusion summarize the review ‘s main points?
Argument: Does the review have a clear claim that is supported throughout? Does each section have sufficient support with examples from the scientific article? Are examples sourced accurately with in-text citations?
Language: Is the review professional in tone, appropriate for publication in a scientific journal? Is the point of view third person (no I, we, or you). Is the wording clear and concise? Is the review free of errors in grammar, punctuation, mechanics, or spelling? Is the Works Cited / References page accurate?
