Research is a careful and detailed study into a specific problem, concern, or issue using the scientific method. It provides the building block upon which societal growth and advancement are hinged. Research also helps us study patterns in the past, feelings, attitudes, opinions, and then use it to determine what should happen next.
The business world is heavily informed by academic research. Businesses use research to understand markets and make profitable decisions. Research has left an indelible mark on society and will forever be the basis for any genuine advancement in human society.
