1. The lecture for this unit discussed naturalistic, participant, and laboratory observation research. Think about a situation where you may have been involved with one of these observational methods. Explain the situation and your perception of the effectiveness of this method with respect to obtaining credible information.
2. Assume that labor and management are negotiating a labor agreement. The wage spread becomes an issue of disagreement: Management wants a wider wage spread, and the union wants a smaller wage spread. Why should management be cautious about the union’s proposal (even though the total costs may be the same)?
