This unit covers the process of data analysis including the collection, presentation, and interpretation of data. A principal objective of the unit is to demonstrate the importance of understanding data and the crucial role of data analysis in business decision-making. While it is essentially a statistics-based unit (including survey methods and questionnaire design), mathematics and arithmetic calculations are kept to a minimum. The emphasis of the unit is on the interpretation and applications of the various techniques studied. Extensive use is made of software to develop data analysis skills and to enhance the appreciation of statistical techniques in a management context. Qualitative research methods, and their role in the overall research and design process, are also briefly covered.
