It is a pleasure to thank my teachers and the management of the University of Bedfordshire who gave me an opportunity to perform the dissertation as a part of my course work in Masters Program. I take this opportunity to thank the librarians in guiding me to find efficient and relevant material like textbooks and journals from the university library catalogue which is the base for any dissertation. Without their moral support this thesis could not be completed.
I am glad to thank my parents, other family members, friends and relatives who helped me to concentrate on the Applied Management Project and gave me lot of encouragement for the successful completion of my project.
I sincerely thank all the people who directly or indirectly helped and supported me in completion of my project.
