Overview: This section explains the research philosophy, the literature survey for this research, data collection technique, data analysis approach and the overall process of the research. It started by gather the general insights that were relevant to the research; derived the information into a research topic; brief explanation about how the research was conducted, how the data was collected through experiment, how the data was analysed and concluded.
The aim of this chapter is focus on how data required for the research is to be obtained. Section 3.2 outlines the sampling techniques that can be used to choose representative respondents to the population under study. It will give a brief explanation on sampling and also explanation on various sampling techniques. Section 3.3 focuses on the data collection methods. It will give a brief explanation of various data collection methods. Section 3.4 describes data analysis. It explains how data collected will be analysed. Section 3.5 will give an outlook on data analysing and section 3.6 describe on data presentation.
Project management with its concepts, theories, methodologies, tools and techniques has developed during the last 30 to 40 years. There are number of new methods of project management which have emerged in recent years, and also started to be used in various projects by both the private and public sectors. This paper identifies the concepts, theories, methodologies, tools and techniques of both traditional and modern project management approaches, then evaluates the differences between them. Furthermore, this paper evaluates if it is better to rigorously adhere to the traditionally accepted project management approach for both the private and public sectors. From the evaluation, it is concluded that the hypothesis which argues that both the private and public sectors must rigorously adhere to the traditionally accepted concepts, theories, methodologies, tools and techniques of project management in order to sustain a competitive advantage and deliver value for money through the successful delivery of projects is neither proven nor disproven. Both traditional
Descriptive research, this will not answer questions like how, when, why it has happened. It describes the characteristics of a citizens or circumstance being studied. Instead it tells us the “what” question what are the traits of the citizens or situation being studied? Although this research is highly accurate, it does not gather the causes behind a situation. So if we did a study on say “How many gangs are in Los Angeles?” This will give us an answer of how many of something, like a situation that is being studied. (Babbie, 2008)
In this chapter, describes the research method that was followed. It including the research design and participants, and the techniques and data analysis methods that are used for research and detected. Moreover, it is also discussing the techniques used to carry out the experimental work.
This section will provide the rationale of the methods employed and highlight how the study will be performed. The study will examine the population with the sample size identified, data collection method and its analysis will be offered.
What kind of result was found by the research design? Compare the effectiveness of the survey research to the other subordinate data, experimentation or observation in the perspective of gathering information for this project.
This part will presents the details of the research design and methodology that use to conduct the study and it will includes: research design, population and sampling techniques, data source and data collection methods and finally research procedures and data analysis methods will be presented.
This chapter presents the background of the study, the statement of the problem, the assumptions made in accordance with the design of the project, the scope and delimitation, the significance of the study, the research design and methodology, and the definition of terms used in the study.
Descriptive research is often used as a pre-cursor to more quantitatively research designs, the general overview giving some valuable pointers as to what variables are worth testing quantitatively. Quantitative experiments are often expensive and time-consuming so it is often good sense to get an idea of what hypotheses are worth testing.

This chapter discusses the methods used in the study. It consists of research design, data and data source, data collection and data analysis.
The contents of this chapter contains the research methodology of the project. As such, within this chapter the outline of the research strategy, the research method, the research approach, the data collection methods, sample selection, the form of data analysis, any ethical considerations and the research limitations are discussed.
Descriptive research involves collecting data in order to test hypotheses or answer questions concerning the current status of the subjects of the study. It determines and reports the way things are. Descriptive research seeks to describe the current status of an identified variable or phenomenon. The researcher does not usually begin with a hypothesis, but is likely to develop one after collecting data. Systematic collection of information requires careful selection of the units studied and measurement of each variable in order to demonstrate validity.
In order to achieve their business objective, project management and the used methodology are key factor which will be responsible for the success or failure of this project.
