IntroductionThe objective of this paper is to make a qualitative or quantitative research project investigation over a subject of construction industry performance. This is an exclusive approach whereby, I have tried to make an analytical assessment over the selected issue. The investigation is also a kind of comparison between the applications of both the methods for the appropriate derivation of the context in reference to the purpose. As a matter of fact the construction industry has often been criticized for its alleged poor performance and to achieve a kind of development in this field.
As a matter of fact the qualitative research can often include aspects of qualitative research and thus the paper is also paying a specific attention towards the same. The understanding and a comprehensive elaboration of qualitative and quantitative research project on construction investigation, is the basis of the paper. As a matter of fact, there is a vast difference exists between qualitative research and quantitative research. The main difference lies in deriving qualitative research as a wider and broader exploratory process. It is the hypothesis that is well structured for the generating of a project.
On the contrary the quantitative research is exclusively about being focused over the test hypotheses. They are differentiated on the basis of the declaration of discourse that gets followed by both on individual grounds. Though both the research processes are not definitely conclusive, yet they have the mode of deriving the actual information that lies beneath the project. In case of construction project investigation the application of both the research methods can be well planned. The difference is that under qualitative research the construction project investigation will scrutinize over the content validity; and under quantitative research there will be a collection of data that are specifically of numerical kind.
This will also have the possibility of being led to measurement proceedings. The application of quantitative can also include the formulations through applied mathematics. This is also there in qualitative research, but here the data always cannot be in a context of being graphed. These also cannot be displayed in mathematical terminology. The usability of qualitative data is more appropriately in concern to the explanation to the puzzling quantitative results in the construction project investigation.
There can also be the generating process of additional variables used to the analysis of the particular construction project investigation. The main purpose of any construction project is to raise the relevant understanding in the periphery of global risks assessment in construction. The next is to get the provision for a practical basis that can well address all kinds of significant risks when making a selection over the research approaches to the particular construction work. Qualitative researchThe whole process of qualitative research has got the provision for enquiry that has crosscuts disciplines along with the relevant importance over the subject matters, and here it is the project on construction investigation.
Through qualitative research, the researcher concentrates over the target to gather in-depth and very comprehensive details of human behavior in reference to the reasons that are meant to govern the selected human behavior (DeWalt, K. M. & DeWalt, B. R. 2002). Qualitative research is totally dependent over the reasons that are behind al kinds of aspects of behavior in the selected subject.
The process of investigation is about the derivation of ‘why and how’ in the domain of decision making. It is not just about ‘what’, ‘where’, and ‘when’. The exclusiveness lies in the smaller, yet for the usability of appropriate samples.
