Abstract: The selection of suitable methodology for conducting pertinent and meticulous research work is of paramount importance, in which the research logics should be given a great amount of consideration. In this context, it is imperative to have a consolidated study that discusses the pros and cons of various research logics and the purposes they carry. Through a structured literature review approach, the authors have filled this gap by discussing the importance of various research approaches, research logics and have drawn conclusion from the relevant literature that each approach and logic is suited to a specific scenario. It can be said that the mixed mode research method is the most suitable research method when it comes to conduction of organizational level research works where the focus is the improve the performance as well as gauge the narrative established among the members/employees of the organization. In manufacturing or supply chain excellent, mixed mode methods can yield excellent results based on their holistic nature. However, the complexity of this research methodology can be catered with modern research management tools, such as K-Chart. The research work will provide clarity to academicians regarding the selection of most suitable approach for designing a methodology.
