Justification Report -Part 3 (Final)

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). For Part 3 you will begin
by inserting your revisions of Parts 1 and 2 based on your instructor’s
suggestions. Then, you will include a few new sections. Note:
Some sections presented below are out of order so pay attention to where the
section should go (for instance, the Transmittal should be the second page of
your report based on the provided template). It is essential that you present
the final report in the correct section order.

Use the basic outline below to draft your paper. Organize your responses to
each question under the following section headings:

  • Preliminary Parts (for Question 1)
  • Introduction (for Question 2)
    • Problem Statement (for Question 2b)
    • Terminology (for Question 2c)
    • Major Sections of the Report (for Question 2d)
    • Scope and Limitations of the Research (for Question 2e)
  • Recommendation (for Question 3)
  • References (for Question 4)

Using the provided template from Week 4, write Part 3 to complete a
single-spaced report in which you:

  1. Create the preliminary parts of the report that precede the Introduction
    (after reading Chapter 11 in the textbook). Each element (1a to 1d) appears on a
    separate page (1a should be page 1, 1b should be page 2, etc.). The preliminary
    part includes:

    1. Title Page
    2. Transmittal (stand-alone business letter)
    3. Table of Contents
    4. Executive Summary
  2. Create an introduction that tells what your report is about. The
    introduction includes:

    1. Begin with a general introduction paragraph that gives the reader any needed
      background information on the company or problem.
    2. Include the Problem Statement that you already created and revised in Part
    3. Include terms that readers will need to know in order to understand the
    4. Briefly summarize the major sections and findings of the report developed in
      Parts 1 and 2. Note: This is in addition to including the
      revised sections not instead of including the revised previous sections from
      Parts 1 and 2.
    5. Discuss what your report will cover and what it will not (including
      limitations such as research, time, information, or any other factors the reader
      should consider when reading the report).
  3. Create the Recommendation section of the Report.
    1. 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
  4. Create the References section, which goes at the end of the Report by
    pasting in your revised References page.

Note: Remember to organize the report by the section
headings. The report should reflect a style and format appropriate for business;
single spacing and bullet points are acceptable for formal business reports.
