    In “Introducing Management and Business Research,” by Mark Easterby-Smith, Richard Thorpe, and Paul R. Jackson, the book talks about how management and research has changed over time. Also, about how personal and situational factors affect success when doing research in groups. Management research has to do with actions and their consequences in public and private organizations. Business research, however, focuses on corporate performance mainly with private sector organizations. It also shows the different ways of conducting research as well as providing guidance as to which criteria to focus on.

    Mark Easterby-Smith in “Introducing Management and Business Research” discusses the different research methods in management and business research. According to Smith, management research and business research are quite similar. The main difference between the two is that management research may focus on the “nature and consequences of managerial actions,” while business research is “more likely to focus on determinants of corporate performance” (Smith).

    Smith also discusses the skills necessary for the two. Skills such as planning, organizing, and time management can only be fully acquired through trial and error. Other important skills include self-awareness, clarity of thought, creativity, and emotional resilience.

Also highlighting on the purpose of Business Research, and how it connects to management. Firstly giving the overall definition theory of what “management “means in different ways. From giving background examples of the past architect landscapes such as the Great Wall in China and the pyramids in Egypt, and how the buildup of such things required good management. Further going on to explain required skills for managers to have such as research skills, patience, emotional resilience, planning/organizing abilities, awareness of the world, creativity, and interpersonal skills.

    Today’s reading gave a rundown on understanding management and it’s different styles, thought it mostly expounded on how it can be used in relation to business research and how these two skills are and can be used in the workplace. Management became recognized as a skill to be taught and learned in schools in the early twentieth century during the industrial revolution in America. While the role of manager has undergone many different job descriptions, such as going from the stance of motivating people and managing change of the 1940s-1970s to the present day style of managing through learning and strategizing, the fact has always remained that management is necessary to getting a job done effectively. This can mean management at home, at work, in school and even in research. Management research can mean that you plan ahead for what to research, such as preparing questions to answer in relation to your subject topic, scheduling time devoted to research, or divvying up different parts of your research.
