In Assignments 2.1 (Part 1) and 2.2 (Part 2) of the Justification Report, you built up the major parts of your formal, researched justification report (Problem Statement, Overview of Alternatives, Criteria, Methods, Evaluation of Alternatives, Findings and Analysis, and References). You will begin Part 3 by inserting your revisions of Parts 1 and 2 based on your instructor’s suggestions. Then, you will include a few new additions:
Write a four (4) page, single-spaced report in which you:
1. Create an introduction that tells what your report is about.
a. Include the Problem Statement that you already created and revised in Part 1.
b. Include terms that readers will need to know in order to understand the report.
c. Briefly summarize the major sections and findings of the report that you’ve developed in Parts 1 and 2.
d. Discuss what your report will cover and what it will not.
2. Create the preliminary parts of the report that precede the Introduction (after reading Chapter 12 in your Professional Communications textbook), which includes:
a. Title Page
c. Table of Contents
d. Executive Summary
Note: Use small Roman numerals to number the pages of the preliminary parts of the report.
3. Create the Recommendation section of the Report.
a. Provide a one to two (1-2) sentence recommendation based on what your Evaluation of Alternatives and Findings and Analysis sections have determined is the most feasible alternative (i.e. solution) to the problem in the Problem Statement.
4. Create the References sections, which go at the end of the Report, by pasting in your revised References page.
Be typed, single spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA format. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your name, the professor name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
