A methodology is the design procedure for performing research or the development of a process and is not by itself a tool for performing those activities. It is a process utilized to collect data for the objective of making business decisions. The research methodology normally includes publication research, interviews, surveys, etc. It can include both present and historical information. A Methodology isn't going to provide solutions but provides the theoretical underpinning for understanding which technique, set of approaches can be used to a specific situation. Usually for almost any research study both primary and secondary research are carried out that helps in the better understanding of the whole research. Primary research helps gather appropriate and adequate data of the present situation related to any topic and offers an understanding into the exact nature of the problem.
