Comparison and Contrast of Research Designs
Choose an industrial/organizational (I/O) topic of interest. A nonexhaustive list of research topic suggestions includes leadership, job satisfaction, organizational culture, measuring performance, work–life balance, compensation, selection, recruitment, retention, employee engagement, training, and emotional intelligence.

One of the articles needs to have employed an experimental research design.
Read, summarize, analyze, and critique each of the articles. For each article, your analysis should:
Summarize the results of the study.
Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the research
Discuss the appropriateness of the research design for the study, the reliability, the validity, sampling methods, and any potential bias.
· Identify any ethical or diversity issues.
