This part of the paper will provide a brief outline on how the group went about in conducting the study, this will include such things as the materials that were used and most relevant to obtain the answers to the different questions that were posed.
In this case study the research methodology used in the study is described. The geographical area where the study was conducted, the study design and the population and sample are described. The instrument used to collect the data, including methods implemented to maintain validity and reliability of the instrument are described. A quantitative approach was followed. Quantitative research is a formal, objective, systematic process to describe and test relationships and examine cause and effect interactions among variables (Burns and Grove, 1993:777).
In order to be able to answer the number of the questions for this case, a group first had to set up a meeting where all group members were allocated a task to do. Prior to the meeting, each individual member had to read the case thoroughly and make summaries on the. These summaries were then presented at our first meeting. The whole idea was to be able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of one self so as to help with the allocation of work.   Having done all that, each individual was then allocated a question and some parts that were required for an assignment.
Within this case, in order to be able to answer the various questions, theory and empirical evidence on different topics had to be obtained. In order to be able to do this the internet was the mostly used source. Further to this library books on certain aspects were also useful but mostly online journals and scholarly articles were the most commonly used sources mostly when it comes to empirical evidence which serve the purpose to back up the theory. Further to this, reference to the case study was made as some information remained useful into answering other questions. Information...
