I, Revti Raman, and my co-investigator are working on a research project titled ‘Managing India New Zealand Institutional Challenges for Success’. This research project is funded by the Governments of New Zealand and India through India New Zealand Education Council. The current survey examines some of the mechanisms that New Zealand business can use to manage the institutional challenges they face while doing business with India.
Your participation will be in the form of a web-based questionnaire survey. The survey should be completed by a senior executive who has at least 2 years’ experience of doing business with India. As a token of thanks, each respondent will beoffered an executive summary of the findings. The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.
Your name, position, email address and the name of your business will be required in last section of the survey. However, all the data will be kept confidential and you or your firm will not be identified in any way. The data will be reviewed by both the researchers and will be securely stored in a password protected computer. The data from this survey will be destroyed 3 years after the conclusion of this research.
Responses will form the basis of my research project and will be put into a written report. The project is likely to result in some journal and conference articles. It will not be possible for you to be identified personally – data will be aggregated and so not reported at individual level.
The research has received Victoria University Human Ethics Committee approval # 21793. Should you feel the need to withdraw from the project, you may do so without question at any time before January 31, 2016. Just let me know at the time.
