'This new edition of a book which has guided countless management research students over the years is now better than ever, powerfully combining down-to-earth practical advice with sophisticated insights into the challenging issues of theory, philosophy and evaluation.'
Tony Watson, Professor of Organisational Behaviour, Nottingham University Business School
'An excellent introduction to the management research arena - this book covers everything the student needs to know.'
This is a very practical text with a particular focus on managers.
Good for post-grads.
I recommend the book to students who, having passed the course, would like to write their bachelor thesis on a course-related subject.
An extremely useful text for part-time, post graduate students with work experience - John Gill speaks their language.
Maintains the excellent standards achieved in the first three editions.
An excellent book particularly for those involved in practitioner research
A useful text for managers starting on a course of research for the first time.
The perfect book for introducing students to write their bachelor or master thesis.
The level of the book is too high for the level of the course.
However, the book is very good, and I will recommend it to my collegues teaching on the higher level program.
This has been a standard text for some years and the new addition continues to maintain the high standard of the past.
Comments as for MBA
Excellent text for all business students undertaking a research project. A logical format written in plain english avoiding long philosophical terminaology
This text book explains the process of researching in a very clear manner. The book de-mystifies a lot of the terminologies surrounding the research literature. I particularly like the way the authors explain the philosophical paradigms and how they affect one's research project. The book is a must read for any person who is serious about research. My advice is that the book should be read more than once in order to develop a deep understanding and appreciation of the good work done by the authors. My postgraduate students are finding it easier to understand the philosphical wars.
A useful adjunct to core texts such as Saunders et al.
Very useful and well structured text for use with those students often managers who need, and want to know about, and practically use research, in their, and for their, organisations. A useful study in addition to course input.
A text that provides masters with a sound grounding in research methods. Ideal for students that struggle to get to grips with academic research conventions
A good textbook that provides a useful oversight of methodological issues for researchers interested in pursue a project in the broad area of management.
Brilliant resource for postgraduate level students undertaking independent research projects
this text is a useful addition to our readiing list. However, our preferred texts are those that are written for hospitality and tourism students.
