Hi, Ive 3 pointers to add to the research proposal that ill sent to you through a file.

1) The first research question is implied as something that must be done in order to do the second question try if possible to make the second question a little more specific.

2) The three concepts, Six sigma, BPR, and TQM will need to be critically discussed in the literature review.

3) The methodology will need expansion.

Please try to do the dissertation based on the dissertation proposal ill send you, and this 3 pointers. Thanks.
