CMI Report Review Introduction A research can be defined as the systematic inquiry conducted with an objective of testing a hypothesis, evaluating knowledge or searching for new information. To ensure that the outcome of a research is valid, researchers must ensure that the processes followed minimize errors, inconsistencies, and anomalies that are capable of impairing the findings. In conducting a research therefore; the process must be closely monitored and any potential problem mitigated to eradicate significant errors or deviations.

This could therefore mean that the questionnaires were complexly designed and therefore the managers were unable to respond to the questions.
