The hallmarks or main distinguishing characteristics of scientific research may be listed follows:

  2. Rigor: A good theoretical base and a sound methodological design would add rigor to a purposive study.
  3. Testability: The researchers made random selection of employees of the organization and study of the previous research done in the area
  4. Replicability: Replicability is reliability that is assured before making conclusions
  5. Precision and confidence: Researchers have confidence that the research will be succeeded.
  6. Objectivity: The consultants were required to recommend the conclusions drawn through the interpretation of the analysis
  7. Generalizability: Generalizability refers to the scope of applicability of the research finding in one organizational setting to other settings.
  8. Parsimony: simplicity in explaining the phenomena or problems that occur, and in generating solutions for the problems

Now we discuss the feature of case study, it has the following main features:

1)The problem was supposed to be attended very quickly; the researchers developed theoretical base collected relevant detailed information from a sample of 25 employees and 100 customers

2) The both researches were supposed to be carried side by side and the results were supposed to be merged for final conclusion.
