Articulation of a concise problem and purpose statement is key to a successful research proposal. The ability to investigate and evaluate a specific problem in industry is relevant to leaders as they can learn from collective knowledge that has been accumulated in their prospective field of specialization. Regardless of the problem, a business related study requires the exercise of reasonable consideration to different problems in similar specializations and industries. Purpose statements extend the problem statement by providing a concrete and compelling reason to perform the study. In the Public Administration environment, the purpose statement should compel the reader to consider the research approach as a solution that will guide the research study.

Assignment 6 Powerpoint Proposal
Develop a Research Proposal Presentation
Whether a proposal for research funding or research is solicited or unsoliticed, researchers must learn to present their proposals in a succinct and professional manner. Based on your findings in Activity 5, create a PowerPoint that provides decision makers in your hierarchy a summary of your research study and the proposed solution.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as “speaker notes” for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Length: 10-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 50-100 words for each slide
