Methodology & Philosophy of Science
In this chapter I discuss the research methods suitable for the study and what is useful for it to use in response for the problem statement which is directed towards the creative leaders in companies. Furthermore, in this chapter I present the methods which I used to find out needed information for the project. Thus, this part specifies the methods of research which I used, data collection and analysis of gathered data.
Philosophy of Science
All people in the world culture, appearence, behaviour mostly depends on nationality, country. Hence, view on the world and how they perceive it is different. As we all have different lifes, different destinies, so many things we create our own truth, and we perceives surroundings in a different way.
I, as group of one person, am subjectivist believe that everybody learn and take knowledge from their experience, what kind of life they live and also how they interpretate the information which they read, heard, or etc. I acknowledge multiple truths and take every person opinion into account. Everybody have their opinion about everything, so I not judge for that others opinion is different from mine, I just accept it. Hence, everybody perceives the world differently, if it is in my interview or in the secondary data that I collect.

The same we could adapt to the organizations. One do something that can achieve better results and would be the best, while another – just goes with the stream and waiting for a better time and think how to survive. (For this reason in the organizations we need creative leaders.) Hence, I as scientist understand that everyone has their own truth and there is no one right answer for a question, because it depends on everyone individual experience.
