## LOG ACTIVITIES.

Unit 3 Learning Log Activity In the 1980s, Freeman introduced stakeholder theory, which led to the

development of the notion of the response organization and, it is argued, ultimately, the

introduction of the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR). You are to conduct a

literature search for suitable papers on stakeholder theory. You are advised to use Google Scholar,

or a search engine of your choice, to initially locate papers in this research area. You should

“skim-read” these articles and narrow your search based on any theme or aspect of the research on

stakeholder theory that you find interesting. You should rank the importance of the best three

papers that you end up with based on the rating of the journals they are published in from the

searching for the “ABS list” using Google). Ideally you will have selected papers from 3 or 4 rated

journals on the ABS list. For the learning log, you are required to provide a report of this

investigation. In this you must explain what steps you took to locate your final selection of

papers. This should include the keywords you employed to narrow the list down and your objectives

at each stage. You are then to provide a very brief, high level, summary of what you discovered

from your search. It is recommended that you consider what the literature search revealed about

stakeholder theory and what you learnt from the process of the search. 2ND PART: Unit 8 – Learning

Log (Presenting Findings) Unit 8 Learning Log Activity For the learning log, you are to answer the

following questions for the set scenario: The annual profit for your organisation last year was

£1203, per employee. The average for the sector was £1228 per employee. You need to know if there

is evidence that your organisation is not as profitable, on average, as your competitors. The

standard deviation for the sector is £104 per employee. Question 1. State H0 and H1 for the test to

check this? Assuming that annual per employee profit follows a Normal distribution, the resulting

P-value for the test is, P= 0.405 (3 d.p.): Question 2. Based entirely on this P-value, what would

you conclude from the test? Question 3. What is the probability of getting a profit per employee of

£1203, or less, when there is no statistically significant difference between that for your company

and the industry average? Question 4. If your annual per employee profit was such that the test had

resulted in a P-value given by P=0.032 and you were testing at the a=0.01 significance level, what

would you conclude and why? Question 5. If you chose to reject H0 but H0 was actually true, would

you be making a Type I or Type II error? Question 6. What assumptions have you made about the

annual per employee profit in this test?
