Action Research

Graziano and Raulin (1993) make a similar suggestion when referring to situations where the control of variables is impractical or unethical.

Dick (1995) summarises his interpretation of the most effective research methodology as one that generates data and interpretations appropriate to a given context.

Action provides change and research provides understanding

Winter’s (1996 p14) description of action research

Dick (1995a) suggests that the way in which cyclic activity provides for rigour and thus validity is through: the collection and interpretation of data in each research cycle before testing both data and interpretation in later cycles; seeking to disconfirm emerging interpretations in each cycle; critiquing and refining methods of reflection and action in each cycle; seeking out divergent data to challenge other data already collected.

Different ways entrepreneurs react to social media

What does it REALLY take to leverage the power of social media? When it comes to social media, people have variety of stands. The common ones are

1. Ignore, Don't care about social media or don't know enough about them.

2. Watch, Just stand on the sidelines and see the magic unfolding

3. Dabble, They are excited enough to setup a profile here, post a message there and occasionally be 'social’ with others.

4. Play, They are involved in it seriously but not all of them are getting the right returns on their investments.

5. Leverage, They are not only players but they are making this a core part of their business and personal lives. They can't live without it and more importantly, they know how to get the right return on their investments in social media
