1. Identify and explain the purpose of the research

2. Determine what information is to be obtained that will address the purpose of the research

3. Determine the research design (e.g., the design of a marketing research report might be exploratory research)

4. Collect data (based on pre-existing research or compiled using new research)

6. Analyze the data to determine what has been learned pertaining to the purpose of the research

7. Communicate the research results through written reports or oral presentations

I'll be working on your second question.
Expert:  Chris M. replied 2 years ago.

Discuss five (5) problem areas that may arise when writing a market research report?

 

1. Problems with the research procedures or instrumentation. For example, a survey that is used for data collection may be poorly constructed or confusing, resulting in data that is incomplete or inconsistent. A random sample of test subjects may not be truly representative of the total customer population, resulting in biased results.

2. Problems with extraneous variables that influence the research results. For example, if the research report does not consider current economic conditions with analyzing customer purchasing behavior, then the validity of the research results would be compromised.

3. Problems with the research costs and time constraints. The researcher may encounter limitations due to time frames and budgets that result in reports based on conclusions drawn from unsatisfactory data collection and analysis. The research reports may be inconclusive or invalid.

4. Problems with researcher bias. The researcher may feel pressure to demonstrate a certain research conclusion, such as confirming the marketability of a new product concept. In such cases, there may be unethical manipulation of research variables or subjective interpretation of research results.

5. Problems with communicating research results. Research findings may be based on complex statistical analysis of data and often need to be presented to personnel with limited understanding of such methods of analysis. Oftentimes, research findings need to communicate involved statistical findings into "layman's terms," tailored to the audience of interest.
