Understand Procedures for Researching Information

1.1 Give Reasons for agreeing Objectives and deadlines for researching information

Agreeing objectives is essential for a team or individual to know what they are focusing on to avoid wasting resources and time. Knowing the How, What, When and Why of an assignment will mean being able to complete the task in a timely manner and correctly.

Deadlines strongly affect what you research e.g. World news is being update by the hour, with a well-defined deadline; we can better gather the relevant information as required.

• Ease of access and readability,
• The level of detail you are able to store
• The choice to have various copies of the information in case of loss and ease of transfer.

Agreeing aims and objectives regarding tasks will help you to do your work efficiently as they give a clear idea of what is needed and why.

Deadlines are also very important as our customers and our reputation is negatively affected if we don’t complete work in the required time, so time limits help to estimate the time you have to spend on each one, otherwise you could spend too long researching one source and then find out it was the wrong source.

Having deadlines allows you to structure your own deadlines, allowing a certain amount of time on each source of research, so you do not overlook the information of another.
