Abstract

Understanding the theories that constitute and surround a particular study a discipline like Management Studies; will go a long way to assist and infuse in-depth knowledge of the subject matters of every phenomenon for research purposes. The objective of this paper is to synthesize some of these modern management theories, by evaluating each of them, to showcase their aspects of phenomenon they are related and their purposes; and how best to use them in any research work. There are over 250 management theories, but few are analyzed to present a pattern of their uses in any study. The methodology is in-depth extant literature reviews, making it an empirical research paper. Over the years most postgraduate students faced the challenge of identifying the relevant theories that can be used to frame their research work and most times misappropriate them.  This paper is to help ease off this identified challenge. Thus the stated findings and analysis in this paper will assist the scholars and other readers to identify with ease which theories or theory is most appropriate for their investigations.  A framework is like a pattern, a prototype that guides the main work; with the intent to assist the researchers in a similar work in order to bring out the best from a situation, thus the use of appropriate, theoretical frameworks will properly situate the scholars effort academically thereby fulfilling the scientific demand of management, entrepreneurship  and marketing studies  research work.
