The twenty-first century is an age of information and technology. The strengths and weaknesses of any organizations depend on the information they acquire. That is, information is one crucial factor that enables government organizations, state enterprises, and private organizations to effectively adjust themselves to current rapid changes promptly. Therefore, rapid accessibility to reliable information can give organizations the edge over others, making them stronger and more likely to be successful. Research properly conducted according to research methodologies is an important tool for organizations to gain accurate, clear, and reliable information.
