The objective of the Activity:
The objective of this assignment is to make students able to identify the
variables, the nature of relationships between them and get a better understanding of the research
methods used in the study.
Learning Outcomes:
After attempting this activity, students will be able to
Differentiate between the independent, dependent, and mediating variables.
Learn how to draw a schematic diagram.
Learn how to design research methodology.
Case:
Product development alliance is defined as a project-based working relationship between two partner firms involved in the conception, testing, production or marketing of a new product. In recent years, most of the Chinese firms have increasingly been entering into new product development alliances to save costs and time, share resources, and, above all, enhance technological competitiveness through mutual learning and knowledge acquisition. One of the main reasons for alliance failure and hurdle in mutual knowledge transfer is the difficulty in dealing with transactional uncertainties and strong ties between the partnering firms help to reduce transactional uncertainties and increase the mutual knowledge transfer among them. A research study was conducted to check the effect of strong ties on knowledge transfer among the partnering firms in alliances. A one-time data has been collected from R&D department heads of 150 Chinese machinery producing firms and 150 electronics firms who are in new product development alliances by using a simple random sampling technique. The findings of the study
show that the strength of ties such as (a) interaction intensity, (b) interaction intimacy, (c) length of firm-level ties, and (d) depth of firm-level ties has a direct effect on knowledge acquisition between the partnering firms while a)communication quality and (b) perceived fairness have mediating effect towards the relationship of tie strength on knowledge acquisition.
Requirements:
Carefully read the above case and answer the questions mentioned below.
1- Draw a schematic diagram after identifying the dependent, independent,and
moderating/intervening variables (whichever is present) from the above-mentioned case.
(7 Marks)
2- Identify the target population, sample size, and sampling technique. (6 Marks)
3- Classify this research with respect to the time dimension. (2 Marks)

STA630-Assignment no 1: Solution:2021

Q1:  Draw a schematic diagram after identifying the dependent, independent, and moderating/intervening variables (whichever is present) from the above-mentioned case. (7 Marks)?

Solution:

 Dependent Variables:

  • knowledge acquisition between the partnering firm

InDependent Variables:

  • interaction intensity, (b) interaction intimacy, (c) length of firm-level ties, and (d) depth of firm-level ties

 

Schematic diagram:

  • knowledge acquisition between the partnering firm

 

  • interaction intensity, (b) interaction intimacy, (c) length of firm-level ties, and (d) depth of firm-level ties

 

 

 Independent variables                                              

                                                                                           Dependent variables

  • communication quality and (b) perceived fairness

 

 

Moderating variables

 

 

Q2: Identify the target population, sample size, and sampling technique.?

Solution:

Target Population=

Chinese Machinary Producing firms=150

Electronic Firms=150

Simple Size=300

Sampling Technique=Simple Random Sampling Technique

Q3:

Longnitudinal Time= write definition in your own words

 

Target population
All Chinese machine producing firms and electronic firms
Sample size
150 Chines machinery producing firms and 150 electronics firms who are in new product development alliance by using a simple random sampling technique
Sampling technique
Sampling random sampling technique where each individual is chosen entirely by chance and each member of the population has an equal chance of being include in the sample
This research with respect to the time dimension is one time data.
