Individual Assignment: Executive Summary Have you even been at a social gathering where you have been forced to listen to a person telling an incredibly long story that could have taken 5 minutes to tell instead of 25 minutes? Sometimes the fluff that comes along with the telling of a story can be interesting, but the pertinent information can often be summarised in a few sentences. Reports, articles and papers can be very similar to a story, where the reader just wants to get right to the point and only read the relevant information. CEOs and other executive leaders are important people who often have very busy schedules. If they are handed a consulting report (like the one you will be submitting as your Final Project), they might not be able to invest the time to read all the details of the entire report. This is where an executive summary comes in. The purpose of an executive summary is to summarise the important information of a report and highlight its key findings. The person reading the report should have enough information from the executive summary to be able to make decisions for the organisation, but not so much that they are swamped with details. To prepare for this Individual Assignment: â€¢ Review the organisational issue you identified for your Final Project. â€¢ Review the resources from this unit, and focus on writing an executive summary. â€¢ Review the Individual Assignments you have completed in Units 1-4. To complete this Individual Assignment: â€¢ Compose an executive summary of 1-2 pages.
