9781843982289: Business Research Methods: A Practical Approach

Organizations need research, and managers have to be able to commission, judge and use others' research as well as conduct research themselves to inform business decisions. Business Research Methods helps you understand the challenges of carrying out worthwhile research into significant issues and develop a wide range of research-related professional skills. Guiding you through the process of selecting, carrying out and reporting on a successful research project, it breaks down the research process, from exploring the literature and crafting a research proposal to practical research management and addressing the transferable skills of project management and communication.

Business Research Methods places research firmly in the real world, exploring why research is done and how to ensure that projects are meaningful for organizations. Examples and
case studies, including examples of students' projects, give learners with little or no work experience a meaningful context in which to relate their own projects. Online supporting resources for lecturers include an instructor's manual with additional activities and supporting handouts, lecture slides and figures and tables from the text. Resources for students include web links, templates, quizzes, activities, examples of practice and sample questionnaire results for students.

Review:

"Ideal for final-year undergraduate students who have to prepare a research proposal for their dissertation or project. It is packed with case studies and delivers complex principles in a user-friendly way." (Yvonne Moogan, Principal Lecturer at Liverpool Business School, UK)

"This excellent guide provides tools for anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of the complexities of managing for real. As a practising manager and part-time lecturer in management, I will be giving this book pride of place on my desk at home and at work." (Paul Mylrea, Director of Communications at the Department for International Development)

"Buying this book will ensure you have a second research mentor stationed permanently on your bookshelf.
