The problem statement must comprise of the following four parts:
1. Develop a problem statement
2. The hook with citation (current/peer-reviewed scholarly article)
3. The anchor with citation (current/peer-reviewed scholarly article)
4. The general business problem- Transparency in supply chain systems
5. The specific business problem- Ethics issues in supply chain sourcing
Alignment in research
For any research to be viable and of importance, the research problem should be aligned including the purpose, questions and the hypothesis. The research model could look linear, but the researcher’s efforts try to evaluate the effectivity of earlier efforts. The design level can be ascertained by collecting data, the processes involved and the procedure for data analysis. For this research, we analyze the future of business with the supply chain. The problem in this research is that most companies do not keep sufficient supply chain management (Armstrong, et al.,2014). The supply chain of any company should be brief and open to all business partners. This enhances service delivery. Massive research should be done to improve supply chain management.
Supply chain should be considered a transparent and anchored procedure and thus critical towards managing the increased levels of risk in an environment that corporate supply chains include many regulations. The quantitative approach mainly looks at universal laws thus governing the cause and effect of a phenomenon. It is based on what can be observed and thus, variables can be manipulated. Ethics in business is less governed yet it forms the fundamental areas in the success of any organization. This research aims at evaluating the outcome and any positive returns earned by an organization if it observes supply chain management. The research is mainly aimed at comparing the supply chain of different companies while estimating their return levels. A corrupt and long supply chain appears to be less effective compared to a well-monitored supply chain system (Armstrong, et al.,2014).
This research problem narrows down to evaluate the effects of ethics in the supply chain management of a business. Ethics should be viewed as a great contributor to the success of a business. A well-established marketing connects the business with customers and thus, easy problem solving. When customers are well taken care of, they feel satisfied with the services offered and thus ensuring future business expansion security. Therefore, ethics should be considered a major ingredient to the success of any business. (Armstrong, et al.,2014). Researchers’ should be willing to re-arrange the project to a specified alignment even if it is repetitive to suit the ethical issues in supply chain management.
