P3 Research Methodology

Research Types

It refers as a methodical procedure of data collection, investigate, interpretation and involvement related to any business problem. Methodology is essential for research because it provides important training for electing accurate method, material and training tools. These tools utilized to solve problem.

Qualitative method:

It is a scientific method which can observes but can’t measure i.e. language. In simple word qualitative data is non numerical data (Guillaume and et.al. 2017). Qualitative research supports to understand human attitudes through observation. Qualitative data can easily represent without any confusion. It has aim to give high quality in collected information so that outcomes receives profitable and accurate.

Quantitative method:

It contains numerical and mathematical figure which evaluates evidence. It can be interpreted through chart or diagram and results are represented in table form. It is complex in nature due to mathematical terms (Fletcher, 2017). Company uses quantitative methods for collecting data which is presented in the form graphs, pie chart and diagrams etc. demonstration of chart, graph and diagram influence interest of reader to collect information and grab knowledge from numerical figure.

I will use qualitative method because it describes qualities. Information is composed by questionnaires.

Research Philosophy

A methodical way which helps toward collect, analyse and utilize facts in well formed. It deals tools, philosophy deals with resources, nature and development of data company (Gray, 2019). it is divided into three parts which is explained below:

Interpretivism: It is a part of research philosophy which interpret elements and incorporate human interests in research study.

Positivism: it is philosophical theory which is based on real phenomena and their potential and relation. Additionally, information extracts from interpreted knowledge and logical answering.

Realism: While realism theory is based on existence of objects which informs about real data or information which precive. Thus, I will use interpretivism research philosophy because it interprets information which is obtained from survey.

Research approach

It is scientific procedure which concludes techniques of data collection, analysis and interpretation etc.

Deductive research approach:

The research approach is based on testing theory and is referred to the thypothesis. It defines variable and concepts. This approach has fewer time to complete overall research that relevant to topic. Apart from this, it leads accuracy by avoiding risk.

Inductive research:

It provides support to emergence new hypothesis or theories which can lead effectiveness in data gathering. It is basically applied for research questionnaires. Additionally, it analyses individual attitude at workplace and provides future outcomes (King and Mackey, 2016). This method doesn’t have scarcity of time, so, research can take long time to compete collect data well formed. Inductive research approach can define as inductive reasoning which is carried out from bottom to high that can be understood through flow chart. For example, survey is best option to collect data about research topic that is HR policies is implemented at job place.

I will select inductive research approach because it requires for qualitative method for getting concise informative data. By this approach I gather qualitative data about HR policies which is formulated to manage equality within organization.

Data collection:

There is two methods primary and secondary methods. Both methods are appropriate tool which helps to gather information. Primary data collection refers as a knowledge which is gathered from survey or experiment through (Litosseliti, ed., 2018). While secondary data can be defined as the information which collected from books, magazine and internet. t gathers primary and secondary data that can be interlinked with data analysis. Data analysis refers as answering of research question which is obtained from objectives and gives knowledge about research. organization uses this method to validate data about research topic.

I use primary method and secondary method for data collection because it leads real data which comes from survey. To collect primary data uses questionnaires by me

Sampling:

Sampling is the process of selecting group i.e. people, company from a huge population. It is divided into two form probable and non-probable.

Probability sampling mentions as group of sample population which is elected randomly without concern about aspects. This sampling can say random sampling which is used to offer equal opportunity.

While Non-probability sampling can be defined as the group of sample size which is elected on the basis of their potential or capabilities so that achieves favourable aspects.

I will select random sampling for data collection because it gives chance to different skills. So, I select 10 employees randomly as gives form as sample population.

Data analysis:

It is strategic methods of cleaning, converting and demonstrating data for discovering appropriate information for company decision making (Aithal, 2017). The main goal of the data analysis to separate out useful information from data and decision takes out by data analysis. It is two types thematic and statistical. Thematic method uses for analysing qualitative data while statistical method analyses a set of information it has collected, interpreted and demonstrated. Organization will use thematic data because it gives qualitative that helps to take appropriate decision.

Research limitation:

This research doesn't use any model which can consider as limitation. Legislative also can consider as limitation in research.

Ethical consideration

It is important part of research which has goal to keep participant safe and respect of their dignity by listening them properly. Ethics should follow by researcher while gathering information from sample population. Withdrawal form should comprise in research so that when employee doesn't want to be part of sampling process can withdraw easily. Before taking group of people as sample population takes consent to be part of research. It is further divided into two parts such as authenticity and confidentiality.

Authenticity: It requires for quality because it gives accuracy in research.

Confidentiality: It keeps information safe about sample population and research.

P6 Reflection

The method which has been used in this report is primary data and it is very important to use secondary data so that the exact result can come out. The sample size of the report is 10 but if there gets more time to complete research then conclusion could be more effective. There was a little quantitative data that used in the research but if there was more time than could have collect more data effectively and could have analysed. It would possible to give better conclusion in the research.

There was a lack of communication because there were a lot of factors which had to be considered. I managed to research more once a week which is why the result which has been taken out is not as good as thought it would be. Due to lack of communication and experience I did not understand the importance of communication and analysis of work was not checked regularly which is why the assignment did not take place at its best. The data collected was little and the sample size was small to be more exact and particular about the result more data had to be collected from the people.

Self-discussion is very important but it took a lot of time because there was a lot of information on the internet which was a bit confusing. With the helps of effective strategies and methods to analyse better information and achieve in my task successfully. In the next assignment more of primary data will be used and secondary as well so that it can help in more clear vision of the topic. I also need to find ways to work and have a direction so that the assignment can be completed on time. It also helped me to understand that it is very essential for me to analyse all the data according to data which was taken by sample size effectively.
