Preparing to Conduct Business Research: Part 3
With many of the organizations around problems, dilemmas, and opportunities will rise that will bring up questions, research and conclusions. First identifying the problem and planning to work towards resolving the organizations predicament. After the problem has been identified then the leaders need to design a research study that will facilitate collecting, measuring, and the analyzing of the data that is relevant to the organization, its staff and its productivity. Now that the company has designed the research study they need to start the research study. By doing this it will answer many questions that lead toward identifying the appropriate solution. The organizations will follow all the guidelines which include any rules or steps towards making sure the right conclusion to the problem is found. They will also ensure that ethical conduct is also followed. After looking at the Danya International and even with many other organizations is the need to increase their productivity. First researching the issue and possible solutions will help the organizations problem to the best of the organizations ability. The problem that we picked brings in many people from the company. The business leaders need to start researching what is going to help productivity. This could either be to hire more staff or even increase the wages. When an organization uses effective research it will lead their business leaders to good actions and decisions that also lead them to finding and creating the solution. The guide lines are put into place to ensure that the organization follows and uses the tools properly to effectively conduct business research. POSSIBILITY OF FINDING A SOLUTION
When looking at the possibility of finding a solution to our issue of increasing productivity is going to be high.

The other side of our research question is increasing our staff to increase productivity. There can be different affects to this. When doing surveys the employees could be biased because they don’t want to lose or hours or not get a raise because or more employees. This means the employees could act biased when they are giving their answers to the survey. Making sure that we have a nice balance when sampling our people that we are surveying.
When looking at the probability of finding a solution to either of our research questions is high when the research is done correctly. This includes doing the sampling correctly. The research questions by adding additional staff or using affect motivation. RESEARCH QUESTION
Concerning research questions, they are important components of a research project. Research questions can bring up questions which provoke interest in finding out more. When coming up with questions what are we solving like management problems who is involved. The researchers and mangers must formulate questions that when answered, represent solutions. Research questions best state the objectives of business research study (Cooper & Schindler, 2011). A research question identifies the phenomenon of the specific study. An example, “What resources are helpful to new and minority drug abuse researchers?” (Danya International, 2003) When bringing a strong research idea it is necessary to pass the “so what” test (Danya International, 2003). What is the potential impact of the research that is being proposed? What are the...
