  1. 1. April 23, 2008 Assignment You conduct a study with a purpose same as that of Prajogo and Sohal (2006). You also build a research model same as that shown in Fig. 2 and 3, and use measurement items same as those shown in the Appendix A, in Prajogo and Sohal (2006). You just collect data on firms located in Vietnam, a country different from that targeted by Prajogo and Sohal (2006), to test and verify the research model. The data collected are given in a SPSS dataset. Now please proceed to do the data analysis and model test by complying with the following procedures: 1. Data Description and Construct Reliability Describe the data for each construct concerned and examine their internal consistency (reliability) by using Cronbach’s alpha. (You are required to summarize these results in a table very much like the Table 1 in Prajogo and Sohal (2006)) 2. ANOVA Test the mean difference between different positions of respondents in each construct by using ANOVA. (You are required to summarize the test results in a table rather like the Table 2 in Prajogo and Sohal (2006), only you are required to show the F and p values from ANOVA instead of the ‘Mean difference’.) 3. Correlation Coefficients Test the relationships between each construct by using bivariate correlation analysis. (You are required to summarize the test results in a table very much like the Table 3 in Prajogo and Sohal (2006).) 4. Factor Analysis Conduct exploratory factor analysis involving in the eight independent variables; e.g., ‘lead’, ‘plan’, ‘cust’, ‘info’, ‘peop’, ‘proc’, ‘tech’ and ‘r&d’. (You are required to summarize the analysis results in a table very much like the Table 2 in Liu and Wei (2003).) 5. Regression Analysis Create summated scales (taking the average) for each main construct; i.e., TQM, TIM, QUAL, PDIN and PCIN, then conduct regression analysis by building the following three regression models: (1) Regression of QUAL on TQM and TIM. (2) Regression of PDIN on TQM and TIM (3) Regression of PCIN on TQM and TIM 1/2
  2. 2. April 23, 2008 (You are required to summarize the results for all three regression models in a single table by adopting the tabular form instead of the equation form.) In additions, some other rules for preparing the report are given as follows. (1) You have to give each table a suitable title and number them in sequence. (2) You have to interpret the results in each table. (3) You have to give concluding remarks in the end of your report.
