Book Description

22 May 1991 080398393X 978-0803983939 First Edition
Written specifically for management students and others wishing to do research in management, this textbook is a highly accessible introduction to the practice and principles of management research.

The authors consider the particular characteristics of research in management and the factors likely to lead to successful research outcomes, including the personal qualities of the researcher. They examine the philosophical assumptions underpinning research design and the choice of different methodologies, and address the political and ethical dimensions of management research. The book also takes the reader through the `basic' practicalities of undertaking a research project, from planning through to presentation of findings. A wide range of research methods and techniques is discussed. Throughout, the authors provide illustrative examples from their own research.

Product Description


`A central feature of the book is an excellent resume of the most appropriate philosophical position from which methods should be derived' - Management Centre Doctoral Journal

`I will be recommending the book to graduate researchers at master's and doctoral level. It is a book which deserves to succeed for its honesty, clarity, and common sense' - Leadership and Organizational Development Journal

`Quantitative methods are reviewed in a way which even the non-numerative could understand; the chapter on finishing and writing up research contains several ideas, including mind-mapping, worthy of a more extended treatment. An accessible relaxed style enables the authors to deal with issues that are intellectually demanding and at times controversial, encouraging the researcher to develop a self-reflexive capacity to manage research as both personal and public learning' - Management Education and Development Journal

It gives a very thorough overview of the main research problems encountered by managers. This is an invaluable guide for students (and managers alike, I would imagine, although i'm not one yet!)

Merchant was prompt in service. A pity that the item never arrived. Not the fault of the merchant --- but that of the postal service. Refund was given promptly.
