Whereas in interpretivism, research variables can be interpreted through socially constructed measures (language, consciousness and instruments). On the basis of above discussion, this research work will adopt positivism research philosophy by keeping in view research aim and objectives as an independent study. Research variables cannot be interpreted, and the relationship between research variables can demonstrate the causality like the impact of adoption information systems on QM practices. Positivism allows quantifiable observations through statistical analysis with the help of large sample. 3.2 Research Approach The research approach is determining the interplay of logic and
