  1. Research Methodology

 

Research Design: 

Once the problem is identified, the next step is the research design. Research design is the basic framework of rest of the study. A research design specifies the methods and procedures for conducting particular study.

 

In this project we are following descriptive research design.

Source of Data:

There are two types of data:

  1. Primary data
  2. Secondary data

 

Primary Data:

The primary data is fresh information collected for a specified study. The primary data can be gathered by observational, experimentation and survey method. Here the entire scheme of plan starts with the definition of various terms used, units to be employed, type of enquiry to be conducted, extent of accuracy aimed etc.,

 

The methods commonly used for the collection of primary data are:

  1. Direct personal investigation, where the data is collected by the investigator from the sources concerned.
  2. Indirect oral interviews, where the interview is conducted directly or indirectly concerned with subject matter of the enquiry.
  3. Information received through local agencies, which are appointed by the investigator.
  4. Mailed questionnaire method, here the method consists in preparing a questionnaire (a list of questions relating to the field of enquiry and providing space for the answers to be filled by the respondents.), which is mailed to the respondents with a request for quick response within the specified time.

In this project mailed questionnaire method is used to collect the primary data.

Secondary Data:

The secondary data refers to data, which already exists.

The secondary data collect from internal records, business magazines, company websites and Newspapers.

Research instruments:

For the collection of primary data a structured questionnaire will be prepared covering various aspects of the study.

The questionnaire will contain closed-ended and dichotomous questions.

Sampling Procedure:

It is a procedure required from defining a population to the actual selection of the sample.

Introduction:

The precision and accuracy of the survey results are affected by the manner in which the sample has been chosen.

Sample:

A part of a population, which is provided by some process on other, usually by deliberated selection with the object of investigating the properties of the parent population set. Non probability sampling method is in deterministic method where the sample size in numerous and can’t be determined. So for our convenience we take convenience-sampling method where all the population in sample is given equal opportunity.

Sampling Method: – Convenience sampling method.

Statistical Tools Used:

Weighted Arithmetic Mean.

Weighted Arithmetic Mean is based on the assumption that all the items in the distribution are of equal importance. Here the weights are attached to each item being proportional to the importance of the item in the distribution.

  1. Population: employees of Infotech India Ltd.
  2. Source of data: The two important sources of data are the primary data and secondary data. The primary data is collected through survey method with the help of questionnaire and personal interview..
  3. The information is collected through survey will be done in Infotech India Ltd..
  4. Sample size: The sample size is 100 respondents.
  5. Sample method: the sample method used is non-probability.

In non-probability sampling the chance of any particulars unit in the population being selected unknown.

  1. Procedure: the procedure used for sampling is convenient sampling in this method the sample unit is chosen primarily on the basics of the convenience to the investigator.
  2. The survey consists of structured questionnaire.
  3. The questionnaire consists of both open and closed-ended questions.
