Describe the issue or problem clearly and with enough relevant information that your reader will fully understand it.

A literature review is a critical summary of published scholarly research on a particular topic. Completing a literature review helps you become familiar with current thinking on a topic; by demonstrating this familiarity, you enable readers to understand the topic being investigated. [MO 3.2, MO 3.3] Instructions In preparation for writing your literature review, please give careful attention to the way in which you will organize your sources. Your literature review must contain at least 10 credible sources with appropriate citations in APA or MLA format (depending on your discipline). As you organize and synthesize your information, use citations and references appropriately. In all cases, remain true to the context of your sources, taking care not to misrepresent or quote out of context. This assignment must contain the following sections. Introduction (Connection to Discipline and Explanation of the Issues) Explain the issues and make a connection to your discipline. Introduce the topic with reference to your thesis or main question in the opening paragraph. Describe the issue or problem clearly and with enough relevant information that your reader will fully understand it. Make connections between your topic and important theories/facts/examples from your discipline or area of study (e.g., psychology, history). The purpose of the literature review is not to answer your questions but to situate your topic within the wider literature on the subject matter. Source Finding Analysis (Accessing Information and Evaluating Sources) What databases did you use to find potential sources and why? (Reminder: Google and other search engines are not databases. Use the New Jersey State Library database resources.) What key word searches did you use, and which were most effective? What database or key word did you exclude from your search, and why? How did you make sure that your information sources were highly relevant? Explain how you evaluated and selected sources to use for this project. How do you know your selected sources are appropriate to your research question? How do you know you have chosen a variety of sources that are appropriate for the scope of your project? How did you make sure that you were fully complying with all ethical and legal restrictions on the use of published, confidential, and/or proprietary information? Themes (Use Information Effectively to Accomplish a Specific Purpose) Synthesize the information from your sources in order to help your reader fully understand your topic’s background and relevant issues. What main themes emerge in the literature on this topic? What do different sources have to say about these themes? What patterns, differences, or similarities emerge from the sources? What significant scholarly disagreements have you noticed? Provide your reader with a sufficient breadth of the topic under your themes or means of organizing your sources so that the reader can be aware of and acquainted with the topic’s background and relevant issues. Be sure to situate the topic within a larger context and draw out themes and key ideas. Curiosity (Sources and Evidence) What information have you found that illustrates both your interest and rich awareness of your topic? Why is this information so interesting? What ideas are you developing that are appropriate for your discipline? Conclusion (Summary) Finally, after you have completed the body of your review, provide a paragraph summary. What have you learned thus far? Keep in mind, the literature review is not an extended annotated bibliography whereby you list each source you have read and provide a brief synopsis of it. Rather, the literature review is a running narrative that develops the background and context for your topic. Finally, additional research should continue to be done throughout the course until the final submission of the capstone project (which must include at least 15 sources in the final bibliography). Submit Written Assignment 3 to your mentor for grading. Consult the Course Calendar for due dates. Note: This assignment corresponds to or addresses the following Bachelor of Arts (BA) outcomes: Students explain key terms, concepts, and theories in an area of study in the arts and sciences. Students apply critical-thinking skills to problems in an area of study in the arts and sciences. Students communicate effectively in written form. Students apply research methods appropriate to the discipline. Your work on this assignment should reflect your ability to: Connect examples, facts, or theories from chosen area of study. [BA 1.2: Connection to discipline] Explore a topic in-depth, yielding insight and/or information indicating interest in the subject. [BA 1.3: Curiosity] Issue/problem to be considered critically is stated, described, and clarified so that understanding is not seriously impeded by omissions. [BA 2.3: Explanation of the issues] Organize evidence to reveal important patterns, differences, or similarities related to focus. [BA 2.5: Analysis] Consistently use credible, relevant sources to support ideas that are appropriate for the discipline and genre of the writing. [BA 3.4: Sources and evidence] Access information using a variety of search strategies and some relevant information sources. [BA 4.2: Access needed information] Choose a variety of information sources appropriate to the scope and discipline of the research question; select sources using multiple criteria (such as relevance to the research question, currency, and authority.) [BA 4.3: Evaluate information and its sources critically] Communicate, organize, and synthesize information from sources to successfully achieve the intended purpose. [BA 4.4: Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose] PLEASE FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS! WE GOT A PRETTY BAD GRADE LAST TIME FOR MISSING THE OUTLINE.

On occasion, od consultants find that they face resistance from managers or other sponsors when they propose conducting evaluation of change efforts.

On occasion, OD consultants find that they face resistance from managers or other sponsors when they propose conducting evaluation of change efforts. One source of resistance is the time and cost of collecting information for evaluation. Another source of resistance is that sometimes managers claim that OD consultants who take the time to evaluate are only justifying their own existence. How would you make the case for OD evaluation and answer these objections to OD evaluation?
