Research Design 3 Research Design Introduction This chapter dwells on the research approach and the research design that will be employed in carrying out this study. The research method essentially refers to the how the researcher approaches the study. In this case, the researcher will employ the inductive approach, which is the process that aims at uncovering a given fact, and not to prove a given theory or hypothesis (Rohillo, 2014). Besides, the chapter looks at the research design adopted, which is this case is a mixed methods research design. The mixed methods design gives the researcher the advantage of using both qualitative and quantitative approaches. In that case, it helps to paint a better picture of the phenomenon being studied because the two approaches complement each other. It is also important to mention that the research design includes data collection methods and analysis. It ensures that the relevant data is collected to answer the research questions. This section succinctly looks at the data collection methods and instruments to be sued to ensure that the data collected will be relevant and adequate to address the research questions. In that regard, questionnaires and interviews methods will be used to collect data. Questionnaires shall be semi- structured to ensure that data collected is both quantitative and quantitative. On the other hand, interviews will largely collect qualitative data. Another important component of this chapter has to be the sampling process. Sampling is essential because the researcher may not have the resources to collect data from the entire population being studied. In this case, Europe is very expansive, and it’s almost impossible for a small research like this one to cover its entirety. Both probability and non-probability sampling techniques shall be employed in this study to draw the sample.

Research Design 4 Lastly, the chapter ends by illustrating how the data collected in this study shall be analyzed. Methods of analysis must be relevant to apply to the data collected and be able to answer the research questions. Research Approach The research approach to be used in this study is the inductive research approach. Rohillo (2014) notes that an inductive approach aims at generating a new theory that is emerging from the collected data, and not to test the validity of a given theory or hypothesis. With this in mind, the topic for this study aims at finding out the impact of technology on business structure and business ethics across Europe. Hence, there is no need of proving a given position or hypothesis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
