â— This must be a specific question, not a general topic.
â— The question must be researchable within the semester, and one you
can attempt to cover satisfactorily in a 10-minute presentation and a
1000-word report. There is no point taking a vague and general
question that you cannot hope to answer.
â— The question should relate to your major studies but it must not be
something that you have already researched and answered as part of
the assessment for one of your courses.
â— The question will involve secondary research i.e. something you
research through the internet or the LRC and an element of primary
research i.e. research you carry out yourself.
â— Your teacher will advise you on how to go about choosing this question.
My general area of interest is company culture.
My specific research question is : How to build a company culture that leads to success?
I have chosen this because lam interested in creating my own company in the future
and I would like to know about company culture to achieve success in general. In my
opinion it is very important because every company should have it own culture to be
developed and to increase employees productively.
Company culture is needed in any company because employees tend to enjoy work when their
needs and values are consistent with those in the workplace. However , it is not always easy to
understand a company’s culture.
Problem statement / thesis statement & Outline of 3 major topic areas to be discussed in the

Literature Review (with in-text citations)
Topic Area 1
Respect is an important part of any company culture.
According to Greg (2015 ) ,all the following steps are main reasons to achieve respect in
company culture : listen to each other , show employees that you care , help each other and
encourage everyone to be themselves.Personalty , I agree with this writer because he define
respect in work environment in simple and complete way which can any employee take this
steps to work on it and achieve success in the company.
Topic area 2
creating a team spirit and a sense of belonging
Real street journal (2017) found the following : Company culture is the fiber that holds your
team together. It explains who you are, what you believe in and where your business is
headed in the future. This common ground designates everything from your teamâ€™s work
ethic to the manner in which they treat one another. A clearly defined culture reminds
everyone that they belong, are unified and are all working toward the same shared goals.
In my opinion I think company culture doesnâ€™t depends on unit employees only , it is a
bout vision and value of each employee in creating culture workplace and to win new
Topic area 3
Ethics in the company lead to have success culture.
Robert vaux (2018) Believes that : the most important aspect of an ethical business culture
is the same as it is for individuals: Keep your promises and honor your commitments.I
really agree with this writer , he cut short of main points realated to ethics in company
culture.Ethics consider one of the pasic cocepts . In my poinion , it is a wealth for company
and good reputation.

who do not have sufficient knowledge of the company’s culture.The company’s
culture includes many aspects , more than I will discuss in my research.I hope I will
come out with good reasults and I have published a good knowledge for the community.
Restate the main findings:

company culture , creating a team spirit and a sense of belonging and ethics of the company as
one of the most important point in company culture.

depends on the extent to which employees are aware of the importance of the company’s culture.
