The scope of the present report is based on business research for management perspective, where the prime area of concern is to convince the stakeholders for a raising funds issue. The case scenario is linked with a development of Community Park, for which all the earlier sanctioned revenue is over according to the budget. The manager is seeking construction and recreation that include a jogging path, children play, decorative grass, and sitting benches, which the commonwealth can use for leisure time and physical activity for health.
The irony is that the activities of Parks and Recreation department have invested maximum for the development procedure and hence is unwilling to invest addition on further development. On the other hand, there can be other fundraising tactics such as charity, function at Park, and policy priority related matters that can be used for the same purpose. Problem statement
The research work is thus aimed at the following objective:
To address fundraising issue for the benefits of community members that can further be useful for the development and recreation of the park.
The issue is important since, the concerned stakeholders are overburdened with the financial matters and hence, alternative source is believed to be beneficial in present consideration.
The research strategy can be framed into two parts; one is the online search of the literature for identifying reasonable steps, which is requisite for the execution of the step (Hair Jr. 2015). To the next, based on the secondary research (as explained), will be helpful in finding crucial points as a part to be explored with a collection of information. This infers the utilization of online survey (using questionnaire set) for the collection of information, which constitutes the second part of the research work (Hair Jr. 2015).
The online survey is considered as one of the most effective tools that prove to be cost efficient and convenient for the collection of information of requisite interest. More importantly, there is no constraint of time (appointment) that usually happens in fixing interview session with the participants. Likewise, there will be no constraint related to location, traveling, and face-to-face meeting for the scope of information collection. Considering all these factors, the adopted strategy is believed to helpful as well as cost effective for the whole process of business research (Chidlow, Ghauri, Yeniyurt & Cavusgil, 2015).
Research question or hypothesis
The research question focuses on the aspect to identify a stepwise procedure that can be useful in the strategic design of the process.
Fundraising issue must be justified with crucial information that can be used to justify the rationale behind the purpose as well as can be useful for the advocacy of the prospect. The business research for the identification of the stepwise procedure is also valuable to avoid any situational conflict between the recreation departments the management council liked the development program.
Rationale for research strategy
As explained above, the research strategy is initially based on a collection of related information from peer reviewed literature. The said strategy is known as secondary research, where the information content will be framed from similar studies, strategies, and methodology for fundraising issue in conjunction with government or public sector organization. Likewise, the legislative norms and regulatory framework will also be analyzed with the same method (Chidlow, Ghauri, Yeniyurt & Cavusgil, 2015).
Next to this, will be framing of questionnaire based on the collected information. The question set will be of multiple choices or yes/no answer format. The approach will be effective as it can provide quantitative results that can suitably analyze using simple mathematical or statistical functions. Note that the prepared questionnaire set will be made to reach to the participants using internet tool (email and social networking sites). Other than this, the research strategy will also comply with ethical consideration and bias free approach. Briefly, the research data will be stored on the institutional server that can be made available for any future usage (Chidlow, Ghauri, Yeniyurt & Cavusgil, 2015). Likewise, the analysis scope will include the consideration of all the information collected, and no part will be excluded from analysis unless, it contradicts the hypothesis. Lastly, the information related to participants will be made available publically, unless it is importantly required. All these consideration is thus believed to make the present business research free from any biases or unethical practices.
Online tools will be prepared for framing the questionnaire set using free sites like Survey Monkey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/). Care will be taken for framing yes/no and multiple choice questions, which can be smooth from the user end. The link to the questionnaire will be provided using email, Facebook and Linked In (social networking sites) services to the participants (Baltar & Brunet, 2012). Finally, the automated server will store the collected information from the participants, which will be used for the analysis scope. Thus, the research tool that will be useful for the present business research scope is Internet tool for online survey (Chidlow, Ghauri, Yeniyurt & Cavusgil, 2015).
