TASK 1

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MODES OF ENQUIRY.

Enquiry is an action taken by an observer to find out the true reasons behind a failure or a problem situation. Or it can also be defined as an action for collecting the knowledge and information required to solve a problem. There could be many modes of enquiries to choose from depending upon the situation and the industry involved, and the researcher could choose them depending on his own preference too, as there is no hard and fast rule that applies to these modes of enquiries. There are three basic modes of enquiry and each mode of enquiry is built on two basic parts, the information collection and the validation of that collected information as described below.

SIMPLE MODE OF ENQUIRY.

a) INDUCTIVE / CONSENSUAL.

Inductive enquiry technique is a simple technique in which solution to a problem is derived from a limited amount of observations. These observations which are directly related to the problem could be based on analogous, historical or multiple sourced data. Analogous data helps observers to specify a problem to be simpler than one but complex than the other.
