A GEM OF A STUDY CASE ASSESSMENT 2 This paper explores the research that the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) performed in an attempt to gain a better understanding of what metrics would be most likely to stimulate entrepreneurship activities across 10 different countries. This paper analyzes the GEM study by answering 5 important research questions that help understand the design of this study and its impact on the results. First, we address multiple independent and dependent variables, as well as some of the variables this study attempted to control such as intervening, extraneous, and moderating variables. This paper also goes into detail about whether or not a causal study can be accomplished without controlling intervening, extraneous, and moderating variables. Further, this paper analyzes the impact of using national experts to identify and weigh entrepreneurial framework conditions and finally, this paper addresses whether you can do a causal study if much of the data collected is considered descriptive opinion, ordinal, or interval data. Additionally, this paper puts forth constructive advice and potentially new ways to extract vital data from the GEM study. A Gem of a Study Case Assessment and Review Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) is a research company tasked with doing research to stimulate entrepreneurship activity during an economic slump. The GEM study was
A GEM OF A STUDY CASE ASSESSMENT 3 led by various project directors who define entrepreneurship as any attempt at new business or new venture creation, such as self-employment, a new business organization, or the expansion of an existing business by an individual, a team of individuals, or an established business and promote various steps when utilizing GEM. These steps can include the promotion of entrepreneurship due to age range, training commitments, creating a culture within the society that confirms entrepreneurship, and more. Several organizations partnered together to focus on the research of GEM, and while doing so it was brought to the surface that there was an absence of control on various variables. This was determined by the data they had used to do the research from ten nations. The study that was completed would propose the approval or disapproval of the new model to add to the economic growth through entrepreneurship. While the research is still ongoing, and the conceptual model is inconclusive, GEM continues to provide a framework to set operational policies for improving entrepreneurship. The following questions go into further depth on the study’s variables. Visual data has been included to provide a clear answer. Other than the variables, the questions also touch on the impact of using national experts and the study’s results. Independent and Dependent Variables
