1. What are the impacts of perception and attribution on organizational decision-making?

Provide a review of relevant scholarly articles that answer the research question(s). Keep in mind that you may have to alter the question wording in your searches in order to identify relevant works. It is important to look for key writers/researchers in the field, and prevailing theories and hypotheses. This article review should provide a foundation to answer the research question(s), but it is not meant to be an exhaustive review of all relevant literature – if you choose to pursue this topic later in your program, you will be able to use this information as a base to continue your secondary research. A review of 2-4 articles is appropriate for this section. (approx. 3 pages)
Application: Identify and explain methods to help shape productive perceptions at a music record company. (approx. 1.5 pages)
