Dr. Angrish Kr.Agarwal Project Guide

The BBA program is well structured and integrated course of business studies. In every professional course training is an important factor. The main objective of practical training is to develop skill in student by supplement to the theoretical study of business management in general. Industrial training helps to gain real life knowledge about the industrial environment and business practices. Professors give us theoretical knowledge of various subjects in the college but we practically exposed of such subjects when we get the training in the organization. During the whole training I got a lot of experience and came to know about the management practices in real that how it differs from those of theoretical knowledge and the practically in the real life.

In todays globalize world, where cutthroat competition is prevailing in the market, theoretical knowledge is not sufficient. Beside this one need to have practical knowledge, which would help an individual in carrier activities and it is true that, ³Experience is the Best Teacher´

In research methodology we not only talk of the research methods but also consider the logic behind the methods we use in the content of our research study and explain why we are using a particular method and why we are not using others so that research results are capable of being evaluated either by the researcher himself or by others. Survey Method: The survey is a non-experimental. There are several ways by which secondary data can be classified. from the quality of user-system interfaces to library user reading habits. In it we study the various steps that are generally adopted by a researcher in studying his research problem along with the logic behind them. Basha and Harter (1980) state that "a population is any set of persons or objects that possesses at least one common characteristic.It may be under stood as a science of studying to how research is done scientifically. Secondary data are those which have been collected by someone else and which have already been passed through the statistical process." Examples of populations that might be studied are 1) all 1999 graduates of GSLIS at the University of Texas.e. descriptive research method. Since populations can be quite large. researchers directly question only a sample (i. or 2) all the users of UT General Libraries. Surveys can be useful when a researcher wants to collect data on phenomena that cannot be directly observed (such as opinions on library services). researchers sample a population.Research Methodology: Research methodology is the way to systematically solve the research problem . Surveys are used extensively in library and information science to assess attitudes and characteristics of a wide range of subjects. In a survey. a small proportion) of the population .

keeping in mind that technology is leading to rapid evolution of methods. Questionnaires are usually paper-and-pencil instruments that the respondent completes. We have automated telephone surveys that use random dialing methods. Increasingly. I'll describe the major types of questionnaires and interviews. You get a call for an interview several days after your last call to a computer company for technical assistance. There are computerized kiosks in public places that allows people to ask for input. Survey research has changed dramatically in the last ten years. We'll discuss the relative advantages and disadvantages of these different survey types in Advantages and Disadvantages of Survey Methods . Interviews are completed by the interviewer based on the respondent says. You're asked to complete a short survey when you visit a web site. But you will see questionnaires with open-ended questions (although they do tend to be shorter than in interviews) and there will often be a series of closed-ended questions asked in an interview. it's hard to tell the difference between a questionnaire and an interview. Your hotel room has a survey on the desk. Here.Types of Surveys: Surveys can be divided into two broad categories: the questionnaire and the interview. Your waiter presents a short customer satisfaction survey with your check. Sometimes. some people think that questionnaires always ask short closed-ended questions while interviews always ask broad open-ended ones. survey research is tightly integrated with the delivery of service. A whole new variation of group interview has evolved as focus group methodology. For instance.

they think of the mail survey. You can send the exact same instrument to a wide number of people. People work as a group. listening to each other's comments and answering the questions. for instance). And. All of us have. mail questionnaires are not the best vehicles for asking for detailed written responses. the interviewer facilitates the session. And. There are many advantages to mail surveys. If the respondents were unclear about the meaning of a question they could ask for clarification. Traditionally. Response rates from mail surveys are often very low. Someone takes notes for the entire group -. But there are some disadvantages as well. received a questionnaire in the mail. The researcher could give the questionnaire to those who were present and be fairly sure that there would be a high response rate. . In the group interview or focus group. there were often organizational settings where it was relatively easy to assemble the group (in a company or business.people don't complete an interview individually. They are relatively inexpensive to administer. A sample of respondents is brought together and asked to respond to a structured sequence of questions. questionnaires were administered in group settings for convenience. A second type is the group administered questionnaire.Questionnaires: When most people think of questionnaires. They allow the respondent to fill it out at their own convenience. at one time or another. Each respondent completes an instrument. What's the difference between a group administered questionnaire and a group interview or focus group? In the group administered questionnaire. each respondent is handed an instrument and asked to complete it while in the room.

the interviewer works directly with the respondent. they allow the interviewer to ask follow-up questions. placement -. . Unlike with mail surveys. wording. especially if what is sought is opinions or impressions.Survey Interviews: Interviews are a far more personal form of research than questionnaires. Some don't have telephones. Like personal interviews. Telephone interviews enable a researcher to gather information rapidly. Constructing the Survey: Constructing a survey instrument is an art in itself. But they also have some major disadvantages. we do have lots of advice to offer that might increase your chances of developing a better final product. telephone interviews have to be relatively short or people will feel imposed upon. The interviewer is considered a part of the measurement instrument and interviewers have to be well trained in how to respond to any contingency.that can have important consequences for your entire study. There are numerous small decisions that must be made -. Most of the major public opinion polls that are reported were based on telephone interviews. the interviewer has the opportunity to probe or ask follow-up questions. While there's no one perfect way to accomplish this job.about content. format. they allow for some personal contact between the interviewer and the respondent. In the personal interview. And. Many people don't have publicly-listed telephone numbers. interviews are generally easier for the respondent. People often don't like the intrusion of a call to their homes. And. Interviews can be very time consuming and they are resource intensive. Almost everyone is familiar with the telephone interview. And.

First of all you'll learn about the two major types of surveys that exist. You'll see that although there are many aspects of survey construction that are just common sense. once you have your questions written. there is the issue of how best to place them in your survey. if you are not careful you can make critical errors that have dramatic effects on your results. the questionnaire and the interview and the different varieties of each. scope and purpose choosing the response format that you use for collecting information from the respondent y figuring out how to word the question to get at the issue of interest Finally. There are three areas involved in writing a question: y y determining the question content. Then you'll see how to write questions for surveys.

In simple terms it involves activities whereby product or services are sold to final consumers in small quantities. It stems from the belief that. Let us look at the evolution process: .Retail Industry The word 'retail' is derived from the French word 'retailer' meaning 'to cut a piece off' or 'to break bulk'. and they strongly think that one should never give Indians a corner. it has been confined for a long time to family owned corner shops.
