Research Methodology Before research is undertaken it is important to determine  the general approach that is to be used. Looking at the goals that are to be attend and the way research can help attain these goals. 2.1 Research Framework  Eriksson and Wiedersheim-Paul (1997) state that the purpose of the research is to tell the readers of the paper the intentions of the study  and how these results can be utilised. With the understanding of the purpose the methodological design can take place. There are  three general structures that can be used in research terms; exploratory, descriptive and explanatory (Eriksson and Wiedersheim-Paul, 1997). Where there is a problem and the purpose of the study is  to increase the understanding of that problem the exploratory approach can be very useful (Saunders et al, 2000). This is an approach that looks at gathering the basic data regarding  the problem and the scenario and has the aim of developing that knowledge and proposition that can then be used for further research (Yin, 1994).
