Proposed Research Position: Benefits outweigh challenges associated with social and ethical responsibilities during global expansions
Proposed project topics:
The need for socially responsible and ethical expansion strategies: differences in specific countries; aspects associated with type of industry or the nature of the business itself (what impact will the business have on the people, the environment or the natural resources, etc.)

Benefits to the organization, to society, etc.
Gives an objective overview of the literature published about a topic, both dated and contemporary, and also recognizes credibility of the sources. The goal is to achieve a thorough awareness about the topic for consideration of future research.
The focus of a literature review is to summarize and synthesize the arguments and ideas of others, without adding new contributions.
First, locate many of your sources and then plan an organization for your review: either chronological, or by subject matter, or combining new theories with old, etc. For the review you will provide a summary of the important information of each piece of literature and an evaluation of it premise, methodology and conclusion; then, you will synthesize the information with respect to other sources (this will entail correlating comparable information among sources). Additional sources will be added after you realize gaps in information you feel would be helpful to fill to serve your purpose.
Next, give insight about what information is most relevant and summarize the significant discoveries and conclusions.
Prior to finalization, you will compose a short introduction which will include 1). your topic and importance of topic 2) the scope of literature explored 3) what was intentionally excluded in your research 4) a brief general overview of the findings 5) the availability of information, both dated and current.
