Executive Summary1 Overview and Recommendation This is an executive summary. It is not an outline, it is not an academic essay, and it is not a comparison2 essay. Look at the rubric for the assignment to help you understand what this assignment is asking you to accomplish. The first two pages or so will include your recommendation Analysis — and justifications for that recommendation – which will include the four considerations that you and your team analyzed throughout the semester. Subheadings should be used as appropriate, logical, or necessary throughout your document. Visual Logic and appearance are an important part of your executive audience’s needs. It is up to you to determine what makes sense for your executive summary. Layout and organization will include similarities between every assignment submitted, but there will also be differences. Be Thoughtful regarding your formatting choices. Look at the “Print view” to see how it looks. Consider saving and submitting your executive summary as a PDF to preserve formatting. Look up Tutorials as Necessary to help with any formatting questions You are not required to include citations3, and should avoid them as much as possible. To accomplish this, write authoritatively. Remember: You are the expert in this. You have done the research and analysis, and it can all be found in the report.4 1 This document should be used ONLY as a very general reference. This document isn’t pretty, or formatted very well, and there are too many footnotes, especially on the first page. 2 You have already done the detailed comparison work in earlier assignments. Now you are making your final recommendation based on your earlier work. Make a recommendation and then support it. Although you might reference comparative elements, your main focus should be on the attributes of the country you are recommending. So: you might include comparative mentions, but your focus must be on your recommendation. 3 Although if you really need to, you should include them as footnotes. 4 The work you have done throughout the semester would be polished and included in a final 200+ page report. Treat the pieces that you have completed throughout the semester as sections of your report. At the end of your writing for the executive summary You will insert a “Page break,” and your appendix will appear on that page. Insert a page break in Word by selecting “Insert” → “Break” → “Page break” from the dropdown menu5 5 I am working from Word version 16.31. Different versions of Word might have variations. If you cannot find “Page break” in the way I described it here, look up a tutorial for your version of Word. Appendix 1: United States Tax Analysis You will show your work here, in this appendix. You might include a brief paragraph about your analysis to contextualize your analysis or explain your choices. Then you will include your graph6. Make sure that your graph is clear, easy to read, and appropriately labeled. Standing on it’s own, this graph lacks the context it needs to help readers understand the significance of the graph. If you find that you need two appendices because you want to include multiple graphs and explanations, that’s great! Simply insert another page break 6 This graph was sourced from a Google image search using the phrase “graph tax analysis.” It is not actually related to YOUR tax analysis. Appendix 2: Denmark Tax Analysis And repeat. Include any necessary contextualizing information Your graph7 And appropriate labels that help the reader make sense of the significance of your graph. In the past, many students have implemented 2+ types of tax analysis to help give them the most well-rounded perspective on the matter8, so they included more appendices9. You are welcome to do so, just keep inserting page breaks and including appropriate titles for each appendix. 7 Same. There are several acceptable ways to complete and graph your tax analysis. It is reasonable and even recommended to document more than one. The students who have done this in the past generally come across as more invested, more thorough, and thus more impressive. 9 They also tended to include very good contextualizing information/explanation and made note of differences between analysis types. Comparative notes between analysis types and outcomes isn’t required, but it’s better. 8 Preparation To prepare for this assignment, you must: • have completed your independent/individual tax analysis • read the two attached file (reading 1 &2) • consider all four aspects of plant location decision making examined throughout the semester together: social/cultural, environmental, political, and economic • determine what your final recommendation • be able to understand and clearly articulate the justifications for your recommendation Purpose The communication assignments in this course aim to develop communication skills that students will need in their professional lives. Students will study, analyze, and synthesize information and research through independent and group learning contexts, and will use both oral and written communication to do this work. Through these assignments, students will develop skills that will help them excel in their professional endeavors. Targeted skills include: argumentation; analysis; organization; presentation skills; and small group and interpersonal communication skills. Goals This assignment has three goals: 1 to include tax analysis in your final recommendation 2 synthesize the research you and your team have conducted related to plant location decision making throughout the semester 3 make a case for your recommendation Objectives The objectives of this assignment include: organization; argument building; making a case Requirements For this assignment, you must first complete your tax analysis. Then, you must synthesize the social/cultural, political, environmental, and tax analysis aspects that you and your team have researched throughout the semester (I did compression to the political dimensions between US and Denmark) You will present your recommendation and overall justifications in an Executive Summary, written for an executive audience. Your summary must meet the following requirements: • The summary must be written to an executive audience • Your document must appear professional and be visually easy to navigate, including: ◦ headings and subheadings as appropriate ◦ bullet points as appropriate ▪ (note: bullet points are not required, but many students asked about whether or not they could be included, and my answer was, and still is, “yes, bullet points may be included as appropriate, but should never be used in place of adequate detail”) ◦ excellent organization ◦ reasonable and thoughtful use of spacing and margins ◦ attention to formatting that communicates professionalism, pride of work, and respect for the reader • Spacing: You may use single spacing, OR you may customize your spacing by selecting “Exactly” in the line spacing drop-down menu and use up to 16pt spacing. Use your own judgment and aesthetic preferences to determine your spacing choices, but be consistent. • You must equitably address all four factors you were asked to consider for this assignment: cultural/social, environmental, political, and economic factors. • Synthesize information for your reader; show them the connections you want them to understand. Always demonstrate for your reader how they should connect the information you are providing for them ◦ Never assume that readers will make the same connections you have made, or that you want them to make, without your guidance. • Include an appendix with a graph and explanation of your economic analysis. The graph must be clearly labeled and include a description that will help your audience understand the significance of the graph. ◦ The appendix must be part of the document, but will appear on its own page. ◦ Use the “Page Break” function to create a separate page for your appendix. • Your recommendation must be clear and direct. It should appear in the introductory section of your summary. Remember, you’re not writing a mystery. Your executive audience wants you to be clear and direct, with thoughtful and well-developed justifications. • Your summary must include the elements of an introduction, body, and conclusion, but must use specific, professional terminology for those sections. Remember: An executive summary is not an academic paper. • Your summary should be approximately 2 – 2.5 pages of writing, not including relevant visual aids (such as charts, graphs, and figures that will aid your justifications), and your appendix, which will make the page count longer. ◦ Your submission will be at least 3 pages in total with the inclusion of your appendix ◦ Your submission might be up to 5 pages if you also include visual aids such as charts, graphs, or figures in the body of your summary • Visual aids in the body of your summary are not required. However, you may find that some charts, graphs, or figures may help clarify your justification, in which case you should use them. However, you must not use visual aids in place of providing sufficient explanations or justifications. Visual aids must aid your explanations and justifications, not replace them.
