What am I required to do in this assignment?
The owners of a small, private, exclusive gym are planning to spend a substantial amount of money on renovating and expanding the gym in order to increase customer satisfaction in the short run and revenues through higher fees in the long run. However, they want to make sure that the money is wisely spent on facilities that their customers want. They have therefore decided to collect some data and base their decisions on analysis of the collected data.
The owners have approached you, as a Business student, to assist them in the collection of data. In particular, they would like you to:
• Based on your knowledge, explain to them why a questionnaire is the best method of data collection for this project.
