General Comments Assignment Structure The assignment should be written in the form of a business report, with the following characteristics: It should start with a report title and table of contents. The title immediately tells the reader what is the subject of the report. The table of contents can be scanned quickly to get an idea of the approach taken in the report, and where to look for particular content. The body of the report should start with an Executive Summary. This should fit on one page, and capture the essence of the report. In some assignments, a Recommendations section should also be included. Look for authorities to quote, using footnotes, and use a bibliography to list any references. Use headings and sub-headings to structure the report. This helps to put your comments into context, and give them relevance. The reader starts with some understanding of what it is you are setting out to say. Use diagrams and tables to represent concise representations of complex ideas or data. The specific requests asked for in the assignment Be sure to respond to each specific request made in the assignment. In the overall sense, the request is for an analysis of a case study, so the answer needs to be written in those terms.
