Description of the research and participation

You are invited to participate in a voluntary research study conducted by Alan W. Woods, MPA. This study is being conducted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree Doctor of Psychology in Human and Organizational Psychology, Department of Psychology, Touro University Worldwide, Los Alamitos, CA.

​The purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship between leader-follower higher-order value congruence and perceived organizational innovativeness amongst individual leaders and followers within their immediate networks.  An alternate way to describe this research is that it investigates if conflicting values exists between managers (as leaders) and their subordinates (as followers) during the introduction of a new program or service. Please be advised that your participation in this survey is voluntary and you may withdraw at any time.

Your participation will involve completing a four phase questionnaire related to your perception of your, your boss’s, and your company’s values and innovativeness.  To ensure continuity amongst participants, you are asked to answer all questions in each phase.  The survey should take you no more than 20 to 30 minutes to complete.​​
