Internal Sources - These are within the organization
External Sources - These are outside the organization

Internal Sources of Data
If available, internal secondary data may be obtained with less time, effort and money than the external secondary data. In addition, they may also be more pertinent to the situation at hand since they are from within the organization. The internal sources include

Accounting resources- This gives so much information which can be used by the marketing researcher. They give information about internal factors.

Sales Force Report- It gives information about the sale of a product. The information provided is of outside the organization.

Internal Experts- These are people who are heading the various departments. They can give an idea of how a particular thing is working

Miscellaneous Reports- These are what information you are getting from operational reports.

Thanks Tariq Bhai....For ur Kindness

If the data available within the organization are unsuitable or inadequate, the marketer should extend the search to external secondary data sources.

External Sources of Data
External Sources are sources which are outside the company in a larger environment. Collection of external data is more difficult because the data have much greater variety and the sources are much more numerous.

External data can be divided into following classes.

Government Publications- Government sources provide an extremely rich pool of data for the researchers. In addition, many of these data are available free of cost on internet websites. There are number of government agencies generating data.

These are:
Registrar General of India- It is an office which generate demographic data. It includes details of gender, age, occupation etc.

These indices may be related to a number of sectors like food, fuel, power, food grains etc. It also generates All India Consumer Price Index numbers for industrial workers, urban, non manual employees and cultural labourers.

 impact of social media in decision making process

Social media is increasing its penetration in our lives. So far the evidence suggests that in some situations the impact on individual and organizational decision making is extensive.

Social Media’s Impact on Business and Decision-Making by CEO’s and Managers:

1. Professionals tend to belong to multiple social networks for business purposes

2. The “Big Three” social networks, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, have emerged as professional networks

3. Mobile is emerging as a frequent professional networking access point

4. Traditional decision-making processes are being disrupted by social media

5. Professional networks are an increasingly essential decision-support tool

6. High levels of trust exist in information obtained from online networks

7. Changes are taking place in organizations’ internal and external use of social media

8. There is a recognized need for peer input in decision-making.

9. Connecting and collaborating are key drivers for professionals’ use of social media

10. "Final" decision makers are more likely to indicate that they conduct research via a search engine (82 percent vs. 70 percent of Decision Supporters)

11. Those professionals with more networks are more likely to gather opinions through their online network, read blogs and query the Twitter channel as early steps in the decision process

12. Younger respondents are more likely to read a company blog and to query the Twitter channel vs. older demographics

As per my opinion, following management styles matches the given cases in Q1:

  1. authoritative
  2. participative
  3. authoritative
  4. participative
  5. authoritative
  6. mixed (not sure)
  7. authoritative
  8. authoritative
  9. participative
  10. authoritative

As far as Q2 is concerned, as per my opinion social media is a source of internal as well as external source of information...
