Submit your revised draft Executive Summary (the one that you first developed for peer review in Week 6 and then modified) in the appropriate assignment folder. This document must

(1) address the problem,

(2) provide simple background,

(3) offer your proposed solution, and

(4) list the specific steps required for the decision maker to take to implement your solution. Headings would most likely assist the reader.

Grading criteria:

  • Begins with title EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
  • Summary addresses purpose (to address a problem), the problem, the impact, the proposed solution, and the decision maker's required steps to eliminate the problem
  • Written TO the decision maker, not ABOUT him or her
  • Written to express what is contained to the attached proposal, NOT suggesting what "will be written" at a later date
  • Contains no spelling, grammar, structure, or usage issues
  • Reflects positive tone


  1. In correct format with “EXECUTIVE SUMMARY” as title (no memo or report headers, etc).
  2. Addresses a problem in a local business or community that cannot be solved by the student without action by a decision maker.
  3. Identifies (a) the Problem, (b) impact of Problem, (c) proposed Solution, (d) support for Solution, and (d) Steps decision maker must take to implement.
  4. Approximately one-half page single-spaced (around 300 words or so).
  5. Does not use “we” or “our” wording to identify research or recommendations (thus masking the amount of work/effort belonging to the writer alone).
  6. Does NOT tell the reader who the decision maker is (the reader IS the decision maker).
  7. Obvious from the wording that it is addressed to the decision maker and not to the professor or the class.

Please submit your assignment as a Word .doc, .docx or .rtf attachment to your Assignment folder using the link below or through the Assignments gateway in the blue navbar. Your completed work is due by 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday, Week 7
