Q: Can you help me write a problem statement for my thesis?
How do I write a problem statement for my thesis? The topic is “Influence of poverty on moral development.”
Let me first explain to you the meaning of a problem statement. A problem statement is a broad overview of the questions that will be addressed in a given area of research. It outlines the description of the issue(s), includes a vision, suggests the method(s) used to solve the problem, and provides a hypothesis. It also gives the negative points of the current situation in the area of the research, explains why these matter, and then proposes how the project at hand aims to solve it. Usually while writing the problem statement, researchers use the 5 “W”s (Who, What, Where, When, and Why).
Unfortunately, I will not be able to write a problem statement for you since I do not have a clear idea about your research. Moreover, since you are the author of the thesis, it will not be ethical for me to write the problem statement for you. You should get in touch with your supervisor and ask him/her for guidance to shape your research problem and profile the key points associated with it.
In general, you must do a literature search and come up with the specific aims and objectives of your study in the first place. You must identify the gaps in the previously published studies on your topic “Influence of poverty on moral development” and then slowly develop ideas as to what facets you want to address in this subject area. Once you have identified these, you can come up with the methods – either qualitative or quantitative studies related to the topic. Your research supervisor would be the best person to help you write this since it depends on what aspects your research group is trying to address.

In general, businesses are often organized in departments or functional areas so as to operate more efficiently and effectively by benefiting from specialization and division of labor with the ultimate aim of seeking growth and financial success. However, there is a difference between the departments a business needs and the departments it can afford, at least during the early years of birth. In fact many young small businesses are often without any department and are solely run by owner-mangers who perform most of the functions expected of these departments. They are basically running on activities such as administration and management, accounting, communications and marketing, customer service among a few others. In approaching this thesis, we formulated our hypothesis around these functional areas and activities to reflect some of the concepts in strategic management such as marketing and communication strategy, cost reduction strategy, product dynamism etc., with the aim of establishing an acceptable business strategic plan which is intended to assist young small businesses in strategically tuning the way existing activities/functions are carried out. This will help owner-managers to make up for what they lack in expertise that comes from having well established functional areas or departments; thus putting them in a good position to keep up with the business goals and improving its adaptability to the challenges in their business environment.
In arriving at our research questions, we seek to understand the operations of the four firms we are focusing on, the challenges facing them in their day-to-day business activities and the view of the owner-manages on the current state of these businesses.
