TASK 3

P.5. Analyse research and data using appropriate tools and techniques

In terms of assessment of research data, the researcher has to investigate appropriate research methodologies.  Research methodologies assist in developing and formation of research in systematic manner.

            Research philosophy: It defines that, research philosophies assist the researcher to assessing and interpretation of the gather information from the survey. According of RP, the researcher need to follow up the research Saunders research onion in order to meeting relevnat aims and objectives of the investigation (Koen,Bertelsand Elsum, 2011).

            Research design: Research designs defines that, the researcher can gain efficient answer about their selected question in questionnaire. The researcher also has to follow exploratory design of investigation. It enables researcher to understand the cause and effects of entire study.

            Research approach: In this report, the researcher has utilised deductive research approach and assumption and generating validity of hypothesis.

            Research strategy: Research design enables the researcher to gathering relevant data about to research topic and attaining relevant aims and objectives of the study. The researcher used both the qualitative and quantitative research method to accomplish the aim and objectives of the research (Merrow, 2011).

            Data collection: In order to gathering relevant data about to the research topic, primary and secondary and two sources of data collection. In the present study, researcher formulated questionnaire about survey and asked questions to selected 15 managers of McLaren construction organisation.

            Sampling: Sampling is necessary part for the current research, in which the researcher has taken a sample of 15 managers respondents of McLaren construction organisation on the basis of random sampling method.

            Data analysis: With the assistance of relevant meaningful data and themes approaches, the researcher has assessed of interpretation of gathered data. In current research, researcher utilised thematic analysis for assessing the data effectively.

            Ethical consideration: Ethical consideration is very vital part while conducting appropriate research. Researcher must need to follow essential guidelines for increasing the effectiveness of the research projection. In order to maintain the value of research report, the researcher has to follow up all ethical consideration respectively.

P.6 .Communicating appropriate recommendations

            From the above research, the researcher has suggested some appropriate recommendation for McLaren construction company in order to implementation of digital technology and also how its competitors are using the same technologies in order to meeting their desired goals and objectives within the business environment sufficiently.
