Applied Research


Research is:
*        Organized systematic scientific investigation to solve problems and  test hypothesis, or Add new knowledge to the field of study
*      Research is a very careful, critical and disciplined inquiry varying in technique and method according to the nature and conditions of the problem identified, directed towards the clarification or resolution (or both) of a problem.


Conducted when a decision must be made about a specific real-life problem
Research undertaken to answer questions about specific problems or to make decision about a particular course of action or policy
What is applied research?
Could cover any of the following:
Research designed for the purpose of producing results that may be applied to real world situations.
Any research which is used to answer a specific question, determine why something failed or succeeded, solve a specific, pragmatic problem, or to gain better understanding.
Research which studies the relationship and/or applicability of theories or principles to the solution of a problem
The kind of research usually performed by consultants or HR professionals. Typically motivated by the need to solve a specific problem in a particular organization
Systematic procedures to answer pressing questions
applied research means the implementation of the results of industrial research for the creation of commercial applications. Applied Research is done to solve specific, practical questions related to product development up to the first prototype.
Applied research is research conducted to further the
development of effective policies and programs. It collects and analyzes empirical data to provide knowledge that can be used to develop new policies and programs or evaluate existing ones.
Applied Research
Demand-driven – intended to lead to solve a specific problems
Designed to solve practical problems of the modern world
Can take the research basic research further based on the results, where applicable
Done to test theories in the field to achieve better validity.
Aims at finding a solution for an immediate problem facing a society
Types of applied research.
             1. Needs assessment.
             2. Program evaluation and outcome assessment.
             3. Client, patient, employee, and product satisfaction
                research.
             4. Cost-benefit analysis.
             5. Social impact assessment.
             6. Action research.
             7. Operations research and organizational analysis.
             8. Market research and utilization studies.
             9. Public opinion and political polling.
            10. Quality assurance research.
General steps in the design and implementation research.
     1. Choose a topic or problem.
     2. Review the relevant literature.
     3. Develop research questions and   hypotheses.
     4. Develop a strategy for collecting data.
     5. Develop a strategy for managing and analyzing your data.
     6. Write a research proposal to get approval and/or funding.
     7. Conduct the research and publish the results.
The central aim is to discover a solution for some pressing practical problem
There is commercial value, e.g. research to improve agricultural crop production
Synthetic
Entails a search for pragmatics solutions to particular problems
Entirely a pursuit of social concerns
The Research Basics are the same
Start by identifying research problem
List down possible related questions to ask
What is your research objective?
What is your contribution? Can you solve the problem
How can you collect information that would facilitate you achieving research objectives?
Scale and measurement
Your timeline
Who are your target respondents?
How are you to analyze your data?
Think of possible Tables and Charts that you can use to present your findings
You still need to provide a discussion as to why people behave the way they do?
Think of possible managerial implications
Can the objectives be achieved?
What is your conclusions?
What would you recommend?
Based on your own experience, what and how would you recommend others to conduct similar research as this one?
Provide some references (10-15 references)
