Problem Statement

Here is the assignment:

· Submit a draft of two problem statements that address current situations, issues, or observations in your field of study (Human Resources) or discipline to your individual forum. Back each of the problems with at least two recent sources from peer reviewed journals (within the past 5 years). Each problem description should be written in such a way as to lead to a different research method (quantitative or qualitative).

Consistent with Academic Review Checklist, each problem statement should be approximately one-half to three-fourths of a page in length. This assignment is due by Thursday.
