Effective Consulting Research Methods Report

Posted by:Prof. Lexx Posted on:Apr 23,2016


You have been contracted by a company to hire the next chief executive officer (CEO). The company has given you ten potential candidates for the position of chief executive officer (CEO), but it wants you to first gather data on the executives to help determine the best candidate. The candidates have been engaged in coaching and have also taken an emotional intelligence (EI) test. You suspect that variables such as years of experience as an executive, months of coaching, and years of education will all contribute to the scores on the emotional intelligence (EI) test, as well as the success of the right candidate. In this case, the higher the emotional intelligence (EI) score, the better. More business experience, higher education, more months with a coach, and higher emotional intelligence (EI) test scores indicate the better candidates. We are assuming the company has offered coaching in the past. The data of the emotional intelligence (EI) test conducted on the candidates is given in the table below:

Years of Experience in Business Level of Education # of Months in Coaching Emotional Intelligence (EI) Test Scores
5 1 5 88
6 2 4 78
12 3 9 56
21 3 8 88
7 2 5 97
9 1 8 90
13 2 8 79
16 2 9 85
21 2 9 60
11 1 4 89
