MGMT 501 Content Analysis

Review the Week Seven Course Material in the Lessons section so that you are familiar with content analysis. Select either conceptual analysis or relational analysis as your approach to present your content analysis paper. Select three scholarly journal articles (you can use any of the scholarly journal articles that were used in your annotated bibliography) and conduct either a conceptual analysis or a relational analysis. [Note that an excellent site that explains this type of analysis is produced by Colorado State:]


After examining each of the articles individually and presenting those findings using the approach mentioned above, add a final section to your paper that combines your findings and compares and contrast the words and concepts that are associated with the overall topic of the articles. Tell how the material in these articles contributes to your understanding of your selected topic for the course used in this assignment? To further clarify: Make sure that the final section of your paper demonstrates critical thinking in the triangulation of the sources you selected with regard to your topic of interest. Make sure that your takeaways from this assignment are clear contributions to your knowledge base and appraisal of your overall topic.
This assignment should be created as an MSWord document using APA formatting including a title page and a reference page. This paper is your final paper for the course and is worth much more than all the others. The main body of text should be 1500-2500 words (not counting Title Page and References). An abstract is not required. Submit the assignment in the assignment section of the classroom as an uploaded document. Note that the examples in the Lessons are shortened to give a brief idea; do not use them to estimate the length of your paper.
NOTE: Do not use macros or automatic referencing in your papers for this course. The auto features usually cause unforeseen problems in format. Plus, part of this course involves the student’s acquisition of the essentials of the APA style format
Follow the Submissions Guidelines as listed in the Syllabus: The various assignments for this course should be submitted as Word.doc attachments in the Assignment section of our virtual classroom. Each file should be named in the following manner: Last name–truncated Week Number-Assignment name (abbreviated if necessary)
For example: Smith-Wk07-Content Analysis
The accompanying articles (3) upon which your work is based should be saved to your computer as a pdf file and then uploaded along with your assignment, named as suits you, EXCEPT put your last name first in the following manner: Last name–the name of your article (abbreviate as needed)
For example: Smith-YadaYada Research
Please note that this week you should upload four items into the same assignment area: your paper plus the three articles (each in .pdf) upon which your paper is based.
