In addition various financial methods were discussed, and managerial guidelines were developed to highlight the research findings. The study used a quantitative research methodology, with the emphasis on a quantitative research methodology to draw conclusions. A sample of 100 was drawn from a population of 150. A questionnaire was personally administered and distributed to three divisions within the DTI.
