Discussion of organization and management research
Organization and the management research is regarded as the systematic process of obtaining data and resolving the main issues that are cu
ently faced by the company while conducting its business operations[footnoteRef:2]. In the present the market where companied are operating is full of challenges and this sometime leads to decline in the overall performance of the firm in the market. One of the main effectiveness of business and the management research lies in the enhancing the management knowledge and in turn all the business operations can be ca
ied out efficiently in the best possible manner. Furthermore, mainly four factors are being present that are mainly combined with the motive to make business along with management a distinctive focus for the research[footnoteRef:3]. One of the main factor is data accessed by the managers is regarded to be difficult as they perceive information as competitive advantage, secondly trans-discipline approach is present, managers are well educated and they need some data produced through the classical research method and lastly the findings derived must resolve practical management issues.

Further, it is a well known fact that different type of issues are faced within the workplace and this requires formation of different strategies. Therefore, management and business research is conducted. Moreover, organization research is all about obtain data in different areas and analyzing it in most appropriate manner so as to manage the overall operations of the firm in the most effective manner[footnoteRef:4]. Further, organization research can be conducted in different areas such as product research, consumer feedback, financial data etc. All these areas are quite crucial for the business and in turn when right amount of data is obtained then it
ings favorable results for the company in the every business manner. Concept of organization and management research is somehow different. Further, both the type of research is practical study where main focus is on identifying the solution to the problems faced through data collection and in turn analyzing it for obtaining useful findings.

Organization research is applied in the field of finance where it takes into consideration several forms of information such as revenue, sales, cost of the business etc. By undertaking the financial data it is possible for the managers to identify which product range is more profitable and what are the areas that are increasing business cost[footnoteRef:5]. Product related research also lies under the category of organization research like if in case if any business wants to expand its product range or diversification is needed then in such case this type of research is ca
ied out. It helps in identifying whether the real expectations of the target market and in turn it can be known whether new product range can be introduced in the market or not. It has been argued that in the challenging business environment every firm focuses on product research so as to improve its product range by understanding its customer expectations in the better manner[footnoteRef:6].

Organization and management research also takes into consideration industry analysis as it is a well known fact that management of every organization along with the overall business is interested in knowing about the growth rate of the industry. Further, management is interested in obtaining information about the actual growth rate, recent trends in the industry and along with this other type of aspects that are most crucial for the business[footnoteRef:7]. Therefore, in this case organization and management research mainly involves industry analysis through which company can estimate growth opportunities in the market. [7: Hitt, Michael A., Kai Xu, and Christina Matz Carnes. "Resource based theory in operations management research." Journal of Operations Management 41 (2016): 77-94.
The ultimate objective of every organization is to enhance its business performance in the market and for this it is necessary for the management to have proper knowledge. The knowledge can be in the form of product, industry, customer expectations and resolving the challenges that are cu
ently faced by the business while conducting its overall practices. Management research contributes a lot in enhancing the knowledge level of the management[footnoteRef:8]. For instance if the company is facing quality related issue in its product range then management has conduct research in order to identify what type of co
ective actions are required to be undertaken for boosting quality of the product, costs that will be incu
ed in implementation of the tool, expected outcomes etc. So, this type of information will be needed that will required to conduct management research so that management can understand about the overall issue in the better manner.

Importance of research
Organization and management research plays most important role in the modern era.
