The research related activities are growing in both academic and commercial settings. In academia, rapidly growing rate of faculty members are entering into research field and enrolment of PhD. and M.Phil in research related discipline has dramatically increased. In industry, the marketing research business is expanding and research centers are established in many business firms, which make valued addition in overall research pool. The scenario raises the need of a training workshop, which could enhance researcher’s skills of doing research in any of the discipline. The data analysis by using different techniques is the skill needed by all researchers of academia, public and corporate sector.




This workshop is designed to equip the researchers with application skills of analysis using SPSS V.24 and NVivo V.12 The participants will have the in-depth understanding of qualitative and quantitative techniques for analysis, real life applications, computation through NVivo and SPSS, interpretation of these tools for problem solving and giving facts-based decisions in business and social life.
