Explore what research is and why it’s so important to leadership. Find out how to make evidence-based decisions.
This unit explores the importance of evidence based decision making and research when facing leadership challenges. By applying theories to ‘real’ life scenarios learners will prepare a research case study and learn about the research process and why it is important to leadership and organisations. Learners will explore and apply research methods including quantitative and qualitative approaches, investigate and consider ethical implications while also producing a written research case study.
