I have copied the relevant section of the White Paper on writing problem statements for you below. You definitely need to be able to do this in order to make the transition from student to doctoral candidate 🙂

Please understand that the ‘business industry’ does not have any meaning because ‘business’ is not an industry. I agree that we are very late in the course for you to still be working on Task 1 but until you submit a problem statement that meets the requirements for the assignment this is where we are.

Let me know if you have any specific questions that I can respond to regarding the development of a specific problem sentence.

Dr. Moore 🙂

The specific problem to be addressed is ______________ within the _____________ resulting in ____________.

The specific problem must be a narrowly focused subset of the general problem that is practical to study within the constraints of the program. In the example we are using, the researcher is not trying to study the entire world of organizations and leaders, just a subset that will give insight into the entire world. In the examples below, the specific problem starts with the same words as the general problem like the first one or a subset of the problem like the last two:

  • The specific problem to be addressed is the failure of leaders to gain employee support for new initiatives…
  • The specific problem to be addressed is the failure of leaders to gain executive level support for new initiatives…
  • The specific problem to be addressed is the failure of leaders to gain executive level support for new product development initiatives…

The focus (within the…) could be based upon an industry, a region, an industry within a region, etc. The determining factor is making it narrow enough to study but broad enough provide enough data for the study:

·… within the high-tech electronics industry resulting in…

·… within the south-western United States resulting in…

·… within the retail clothing industry in the southeastern United States resulting in…

The last part of the specific problem should restate the results from the general problem or a subset of the results from the general problem:

·… resulting in the inability of organizations to make critical changes.

·… resulting in the inability of the organization to make critical product line changes.

Putting all of the pieces above together into a single sentence: The specific problem to be addressed is the failure of leaders to gain executive level support for new product development initiatives within the retail clothing industry in the southeastern United States resulting in the inability of organizations to carry out critical product line changes.

Hi Jordan,

You have still not limited the scope in your specific problem sentence. You really need to read the paper on writing effective problem sentences and work out how to address this. How is that document asking you to limit the scope?

Dr. Moore :-)

HI Jordan,

Ok, how do you plan to reduce the scope of the problem in the specific problem sentence. Review the white paper again. By region, by industry?

Think about where you might try to study this,
