Data is the foundation of all research. Its synthesization, organization, and presentation work in tandem to present a convincing argument.
Read the case study Fraud versus Ethics: The Case of the Backdating of Stock Options and write a synopsis that answers the following questions:
What type of data was used for the research?
How did the author synthesize and organize the data?
What references were used to defend the position?
Were the references used sufficient? Why or why not?
Did the author adequately defend his position with relevant data?
Fully explain your answers and ensure academic references are utilized.
