Please see Professor notes below:
You have a good concept but a bit of work is still needed on your problem statement.  Specific wording is needed in both your general and specific problem sentences. i.e. “The general problem to be addressed is (insert problem) resulting in (insert consequence of the problem).  Please make sure to review the white paper on Effective Problem Statements to better understand what the required wording is to be used. Your problem statement should not exceed 250 words.  You only want to include the most critical information demonstrating that this is a problem that needs to be studied.  Your specific problem sentence should be a narrower subset of the general problem sentence. In the specific problem sentence, you want to include the word “potential” as this is what you are trying to determine by conducting the study. i.e. “The specific problem to be addressed is the potential (insert narrower subset of the problem) resulting in (insert consequences of the problem)”. I noticed you indicate that you will be using a survey.  In a case study, your primary source of data collection needs to be either interviews or focus groups.  You need to have live conversations where probing questions and follow-up questions can be asked based on what is being discussed.  You can use a survey for triangulation purposes but not as the primary data source.
