The anecdote shows exceptional scenario or rather very unusual event- luck at its very best. To back up my point, I will give data on the deceased and causalities for the occupants not having their seat belts buckled up and the ones that have their seat belts on.
In the earliest thirty years, the road carnages are leading cause of loss of lives in America. In 2009, over 70% of occupants in the vehicles and the trucks were involved in a road accident killing about thirty thousand passengers with over two million people in the name of injuries.
More than 16000 of the deceased in the road carnages were not reserved at the time of the crash thus proving that they never had their seat belts on. Having your seatbelt buckled up is the most effectual way to prevent accident casualties.
Fortunately, the use of seat belt is rising. Comparing the level of its usage in 1982 to 2013 there is a great appreciation in term of percentage- from 11% to 85%- owing it to creation of awareness. However, still 1 in every 7 passengers is still ignorant.
Research is a planned systematic strategy of seeking answers to questions. It has various steps that are followed accordingly to draw conclusions. Furthermore, research can only be successful when one gets answers whether it is positive or not-whether it is in his favor on not. Development research is on essential, vital and relevant questions. Without questions there is no need for research- it has no meaning whatsoever. Most mangers have resorted to the use of research for better performance of the companies or organization.
Research is very important to a manger because it allows him/she to get remedies to major issues in their company by: giving facts that will aid him to analyze the issue, testing the possibility and effects of the strategy and finding better remedies to the problems. It can help a manager identify a problem and give recommendations but it is upon the manager to put them into practice. The mangers should be aware that before making a decision research confirms what they already know. For instance, in our company before a performance appraisal was conducted, the manager thinking of increasing the number of the employees.
In my quest to join Tiffin University for my MBA program I had to do some research on the same. Issues that I had to do a research on were; the cost of the program with the details of the fees and the duration in which it should be cleared so that I would be able to plan my finances in a more appropriate manner. I also researched on the location of various branches of Tiffin University that offered the MBA program so that I would be able to plan on how to get a location that is easily accessible for me.
One question that I should have sought to ask was the way the lectures were offered. I was informed that the lectures were offered by use of case studied which involved the discussion of real life cases arising in the industries that are up and running. I was further informed that this would help one be able to plan on how to handle the same situations if they happen to arise in organizations and how to avoid them.
