Article review – Leadership (analysis)
Data Analysis and Results
Data analysis involved both descriptive and statistical analyses conducted with SPSS. Descriptive statistics were for the means and standard deviations for various variables (see table , p. 68). Statistical analysis included correlation tests, t-test, and the chi-square tests. The other statistical test was a regression analysis for assessing effects of various variables on team performance (the third hypothesis). The tests were conducted at 0.01 and 0.05 levels of significance. These tests were sufficient for assessing the hypotheses stated earlier in the paper. For instance, the regression conducted provides insight into the relationship between team performance (dependent variable) and the hypothesised independent variables (e.g. leadership style and team cohesiveness). Results presentation included tables, and graphs. The results for all the analyses are presented in a clear format with relevant explanations.
Discussion of Results
The discussion of the results is well-outlined. Observed attributes are compared and contrasted with prior findings as well as the author’s expectation, as informed by their theoretical framework. This section also begins by restating the thesis, thus one is made aware of the purpose of the study even at this point. Finally, the paper appropriately addresses the limitations to the study, and notes the areas where further studies are welcome, as well as alternative models that may have provided different outcomes.
