While there are many other books on research methods, Research in Organizations differs from them in applying these methods to the study of organizations, supported by numerous case studies illustrating each process. A comprehensive beginner’s research text, the book covers the foundations and methods relevant to doing research in organizations, as well as the identification of research questions and the ethical conduct of research. Research in Organizations offers a holistic perspective of the subject that embraces quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methodology research procedures. Written by two experts in the field who have authored over 300 articles and books on this subject, the book has won the endorsement of the Academy of Human Resources Development.
