    Abstract Blending qualitative and quantitative research methods is widely propagated as a strategy for both quality control and enrichment of organization research. This has been recognized in the organization literature for more than twenty years. However, during the last decade the progress in the practice of research has not been altogether impressive. Ambiguity is one of the key problems in this respect. This paper tries to clarify the discussion on blended methods, by (1) clarifying concepts used to describe blended design, (2) inventoririzing and categorizing the different forms and objectives of blended design, and (3) developing a provisional framework. The study departs from the research practice, the sequences of action in concrete studies. The focus is on research as a process, rather than on specific methods. Finally, the paper suggest some directions for a development program for blending methods.
