A problem statement is a very common feature that is often seen within businesses and corporations. Basically, it is a list and description of problems that is given to a problem solving team as a sort of brief before they attempt to solve the problems. If you are putting together a team with the purpose to solve these problems, then some sort of problem statement is essential.

Problem statements can all be different lengths and contain as little as one problem to dozens of them, but all good problem statement should contain the following elements.

Firstly there should be a detailed description of what the problem actually is. This section should also explain exactly why the team is needed.

Secondly you should say who has the problem, in other words, who is your businesses' client or customer. This section should also tell the team who needs you to come up with this solution and who will be the person to decide whether or not the problem has actually been solved.

The third section can sometimes be the most complex as in this one you need to say what form the solution should be in, although this ultimately depends on what the problem is. What restrictions are in place on the solution e.g. Time, budget and resources? What is the scope of resources that can be used to try and solve the problem? When you believe you have solved the problem will your client want a white paper report?

A research worthy problem is the description of an active challenge faced by researchers who have yet to find an adequate solution. A research worthy problem should address six questions: What, how, where, why, when and who. The statement of the problem is simply one or two sentences that answer the question: What problem will the research address?

It is a statement of the problem, usually in a scientific or persuasive essay.
Eg: You are writing an essay about the affects of coffee on plant growth speed.
Your problem statement might be: My plants are not growing fast enough. You would then state your hypothesis.

A problem statement is a nothing but a concise and precise description of the nature, scope, causes, severity and the effect or impact of a problem. Thus a problem statement is the specific description of a problem which is essential to understand it properly. A problem statement is the initial step before venturing into any kind of research. It is necessary to formulate a good and effective problem statement to ensure that the research is successful.

A good problem statement would always be specific and focus on one particular issue instead of being vague and running the risk of being confused. Confusion would cause problems in your research and may topple the cause of research itself. Therefore a good problem statement would be restrictive and would express one major idea.

A problem statement is the description of the issues and the problems which are supposed to be addressed by a problem solving team. A problem solving team can be a management team of a company, researchers etc. A business research paper highlights the management issue which is to be resolved and problem statement gives the concise description of the issue. Therefore, problem statement gives a specific purpose to be achieved. The primary aim of problem statement is to converge the attention of the target audience towards one point. If the scope of statement is too limited then it can limit the innovations and creativity.

A problem statement is used by problem solving team as this statement gives a very concise and clear description of the key areas of the problem that are to be solved.

The main purpose for which the problem statement is used for is that it maintains the focus of the problem solving team. A good problem statement when used and described will always take into account the specific requirements and the focus on the major issue instead of catering to a number of issues and being vague, that will in turn create confusion.
