One of the more common research methods, a survey enables researchers to gather large amounts of data quickly and at a comparatively low cost. Due to the widespread use of surveys, a solid methodology and numerous samples make it fairly easy to put together a sound survey that gathers relevant data.
Disadvantages of surveys include people in the target market not responding, partially completed surveys and shallow information about the target market. Interviews often employ the same questions as those found on surveys, but they afford people the opportunity to respond at length.
Interviews tend toward the time-intensive, and careless interviewers can bias interviewee answers. Focus groups typically consist of a small group of people consistent with a target market profile that discuss a product or service. Focus groups offer a kind of middle ground between other research methods. They provide a larger sample group than interviews or a case study, while taking advantage of the depth that interviews afford. Integrating insights from other research areas, it provides novel approaches and multiple techniques for leadership research in a straightforward fashion.
Because the volume is designed to help leadership researchers get their first insights into specific methods and their potential application to leadership research, it is appropriate for multiple audiences. These include academics and practitioners wanting to try a new method, as well as advanced undergraduate and graduate students wanting an overview of a variety of techniques.
It will also be helpful to readers and reviewers as they endeavour to better understand and assess the quality of existing leadership research. Notify me when product is available.

This book can be used as a supplement to a traditional marketing research text or on its own.
