Questionnaires and Surveys

When we walk in the high street at the weekend, we come across sweet-talking men and women with boundless enthusiasm and patience get in the way to ask a few questions. They carry out surveys - a questionnaire designed for a purpose.

They have mastered the basic guidelines of carrying out a successful survey - most of the time, we do not feel like disappointing them, by just ignoring them.

Likewise, if we stick to some basic rules, we are in the process of emulating them and developing successful questionnaires.
