5-1 Discussion: Preliminary Methodology     

In this discussion, state your proposed method, design, and data-collection instruments and reasons behind each. Provide clear justification for each choice you make as well as an explanation of the reliability and validity for instruments you have chosen.

Recruiting and Interviewing

Proposed Method: The proposed research methods used would be content analysis, case studys and interviews/ questionnaires. Content analysis is important because Researchers quantify (i.e. count) and analyze (i.e. examine) the presence, meanings and relationships of words and concepts to develop conclusions (McLeod, 2007). During the recruiting and interviewing process words are critical. Case studys are very direct and can go in depth. The data collected is qualitative and very reliable. Questionnaires can be thought of as a kind of written interview (McLeod, 2007). A structured interview very similar to a set of questions in a questionnaire is a convenient way to collect data.

Design: The design for this research is qualitative. There must be intense examination that go in depth to have a clear understanding of the process. This process will determine the prosperity of a company and this design will provide accurate results.

Data-Collection Instruments: The data will be collected throughout the processes by psychology professionals. Questionnaires will be electronically sent to and from the participants and then examined. The validity of the data will not be questionable due to the reliable research methods.
