Sample Research Project Problems
Now that you have digested the “whole” of the Research Project procedures, it is time to introduce some possible problems and titles for the Business Research. The reoccurring theme is that an actual “real live” problem exists that will be researched for a possible solution.

Senior Project Topic Proposal
Name: Group: Date:
Using your completed Problem Analysis Worksheet as a guide, type your responses to the following questions. Strive for complete, yet concise, statements.
1. Problem statement (This can take the form of a statement or question and should include where the problem is found, major elements or variables involved, and the population affected.)
2. What is your personal involvement with the problem, and to what degree do you have control over the situation?
3. On the basis of your problem analysis, what are your explanations and assumptions about the cause(s) of this problem?
4. Specifically, in what practical ways will the situation improve if the problem is solved? How will your organization benefit?
5. What are the first two or three steps you need to take?
6. How do you plan to go about gathering your information?
Senior Project Facilitator: Date:
Problem Analysis Worksheet (session 1)
1. State the problem in as clear and concise a manner as possible:
2. Why is this a problem?
a. Where is the problem located or centered?
b. Who is affected by the problem?
3. Observations of the problem –
DESCRIPTION OF CURRENT STATUS
DESCRIPTION OF DESIRED STATUS
4. Analyze the above for symptoms vs. possible causes. Ask yourself what causes the condition that makes you think there is a real problem. Is this really the problem or only the manifestation of a symptom?
POSSIBLE CAUSE (LIST)
5. List all possible explanations (hypotheses) for the problem. Use complete sentences, such as: The problem is a result of ineffective communication between departments.
6. Explain why the above explanations (hypotheses) appear to be relevant or applicable to your project.
7. Indicate any relationship among the most relevant explanations (hypotheses) identified in #6. (i.e., are they getting at the same thing – does one have implication for another?)
Please review the Problem Analysis & Topic Proposal Worksheets. In this discussion post your problems so fellow learners can assist you with the worksheet. This is a discussion so fellow learners can assist you in completing the worksheet(s).
Once you feel comfortable with your Problem Analysis and your selected proposal submit your Worksheet A & B for this Module.
Problem Analysis/Topic Proposal Worksheet
You are now ready to submit Appendix A & Appendix B: Senior Project Topic Proposal.
The problem statement, which will become the topic proposal, should be a brief and clear statement. Keep in mind that this proposal needs to be written in such a way that someone who knows nothing about the area of study will understand it. Define all specialized terms clearly and concisely.
You can locate the Problem Analysis and Topic Proposal Work sheet in “files’.
The Topic Proposal must be approved and signed by the Project Facilitator.

Career preparation and development is one of the most important developmental processes in a student’s college experience. When students matriculate through college they are seeking to receive a college education and ultimately a college degree in a specific field of study. Deciding on a career is a developmental process, marked by significant events and experiences. Employers want well-rounded students that enhance their in classroom education with key career-related experiences. While students are matriculating through college, it is the institution’s responsibility to ensure that they are producing a well-rounded student ready to be successful in their field of study. Students at ________ College are not engaged in professional development programs while matriculating through college because the one area that is not focused on is career awareness and job placement. As they prepare for graduation and attempt to face the uncertainty of the avenue of their career, the second primary function of the _______ College is to build a bridge of opportunity by equipping and preparing students with a solid career plan.
The problem at ________ College is students aren’t learning what they need to compete for the jobs that exist in their field of study. As the students are preparing to graduate, they are not employed in their field of study and not prepared to enter workforce. Students spend four to five years at the institution and during that time receive little to no professional training that will prepare them to enter the workforce. Today’s college graduates are entering a highly competitive job market, so it is essential and imperative that they receive adequate training to compete effectively with other college graduates. Some of the graduates will indeed find a job despite worse macroeconomic conditions, others might choose to pursue post-graduate education, and but the majority will join the pool of the unemployed. During high unemployment rates, the number of job candidates in the market is higher than the number of available jobs. _________ College should strive to empower a diverse student population that will actively be prepared to seek their career choices in the global marketplace.

The adult learner will:
1. Think of a problem in the workplace to solve.
2. Complete a problem analysis.
3. Create a topic proposal.
PROBLEM ANALYSIS AND TOPIC PROPOSAL
You are now ready to choose the problem topic for the Reserch Project. Begin by generating a series of possible topics. Once the obvious problems are down on paper, the new, often better ideas start to flow. Do not worry about feasibility at this point. Include at least a few topics that will stretch the mind a bit. Keep in mind though, the biggest mistake is to select the easiest problem just to complete the requirements. Little learning takes place when this is done.
Once you have generated a large number of topics, group them in categories such as job, community, or environment. Develop a few of these ideas beyond the single word or phrase stage.
Discuss several of the topic areas with the site contact as well as the Business Application Project Facilitator. Submit the Problem Analysis Worksheet when it is due.
Let us take a closer look at what is involved in conducting a problem analysis. Remember, you are not looking for solutions yet; but are interested in zeroing in on the problem area so that a clearer and more accurate picture may emerge.
1. Write down the initial question — for example:
· “Why are other departments producing better results than this one?”
· “Why are sales not higher in this department?”
· “Why is absenteeism higher in this department than in any other department of the office complex?”
2. Roughly delineate the problem area, including:
· What is being discussed about it and why is it a problem?
· Where is the problem located and who is involved?
Answers to these questions often require no more than a word or a short phrase.
3. Accumulate observations that appear to be related to the problem question. Separate these observations into two lists—one that describes the current situation and one that describes the desired status. These lists will include symptoms of outward manifestations of the problem as well as possible underlying causes.
Obtain these initial observations from the organization in which you will be implementing the Business Application Project. To add to these possible causes, brainstorm (with fellow adult learners, site contact and others in the organization) other possible causes. Some of these additional possible causes will suggest other symptoms that should be observed. Further observations and discussions with others in the organization will verify whether these symptoms exist. Finally, there should be a complete list of the symptoms and possible causes.
4. Consolidate the list of symptoms and causes and translate them into a set of explanations of the problem. It is importan
