Summary "This book provides the reader with pointers on how to conduct organizational research appropriately, through planning and making informed and systematic research decisions, from understanding the ethical implications of applied organizational research, to implementing, reporting and presenting the findings to the highest possible standards. It provides an overview of a wide variety of research strategies, methods of data collection (both qualitative and quantitative) and analysis in a volume accessible to undergraduates, postgraduates, and practitioners. Organizational Research Methods also represents a useful aid to the report writing task, indicating ways in which the project material can be most effectively organized for academic and feedback purposes, and by drawing upon real life organizational contexts and examples to help the reader understand the core issues. Finally, the book offers a procedure for preparing a presentation to an academic or an organizational audience. Providing practical guidance on all elements of the research process, this book will be for all undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as researchers in psychology, organizational studies, and management disciplines."--BOOK JACKET.
