Chaper THREE - Methodology
The research will enable the author to identify relationships or trends with the outcomes of team building exercises.
The research is qualitative so that depth of understanding can be gained from the interviewee.
This research was conducted within the Team Building Company Progressive Resources who prescribe exercises to the corporate environment to resolve issues relating to any number of problems.
The Questions Asked
The research was collected in the form of interviews after the events had taken place.
Questions regarding expectations prior to the excerise assessed the expectations from management.
These were followed by questions regarding the extent to which these expectations were satisfied and the benefits experienced.
The interviews took place over the telephone as the desired managers are unable to commit to personal interviews due to time restraints.
Even though the interviews were not face-to-face the qualitative data is still strong and in-depth opinions and results of the exercises were ascertained.
It is more beneficial to have a telephone interview with the senior managers than it is to have a face-to-face interview with junior managers or team leaders as the information gained from senior members will be of greater relevance and quality.
