Tips And Tricks For Writing A Problem Solution Essay On Business


This type of project requires you to look at a problem in business and detail possible solutions. Now, you may understand what’s expected of you, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you know how to go about it! Well, if that’s the case, here are some handy ideas to help you on your way.

Pick…

First you need to select your subject; and there are plenty of topics to choose from. You could look at corruption, tax avoidance or Fairtrade issues, for example. Whatever topic you select, you should make sure that you have an interest in it (your passion will show, and the reader will therefore engage more) and that it is a subject on which you can find plenty of resources for. The object of this type of assignment is to convince your reader that there is a problem and that there are solutions available, so the more your chosen issue can fit the bill, and the wider array of opinions regarding the issue you can find, the better.

Once you’ve decided on your chosen subject, you should narrow it down to a specific point as much as possible.

Organize…

The simplest ideas are usually the best ones. So my top piece of advice would be: get yourself organized! Come up with a timetable that you know you can stick to. Focus and you can’t go wrong!

Plan…

Once you have your topic, and have researched it fully, gather together all your notes and make a rough plan. Make a list of all the problems and a list of all the possible answers. Make a chart to show which parts interrelate and at which junctures things could conceivably be fixed. The more you can make a visual map of the content that needs to be addressed, the easier it will be to correlate it- and make sure you can back up your statements!

Polish…

You should write a first draft and edit it again and again until it’s just right! Make sure you leave time in your timetable to be able to do this. You should read your paper over and over until you’re happy with every word- if you want to write a truly polished piece that is!

Try to look at things from someone else’s point of view. You may think you’ve described issues accurately and have made brilliant suggestions- but have you really? Could it be better? Read your paper through the eyes of your teacher and ask yourself: can I back up what I’m saying with credible sources? Have I conveyed points to the reader well enough? Could the flow be better? The more you address each detail, the greater your work will be!
