While it is almost always necessary for the researchers to draw conclusions, it is not always possible or advisable for them to make recommendations. On occasions the researcher may be specifically ask not to make recommendations. In other situations where the researcher have worked o one problem but have limited knowledge of the company background and general operating policies. They would be unwise to recommends definite courses of action even if asked to do so. Making recommendation assumes considerable knowledge of the total picture including the resources of the firm and all the alternative course of action. Often research workers do not have this knowledge.
