recommendation report

this paper is the continuing work. please look through the \”upload & view files\” , 222(1).docx first thank you.

Your final report will be a recommendation report and will offer recommendations to solve a real problem. You identified a problem (or possibly an opportunity that is not being taken advantage of) in your proposal assignment. Your final assignment is to write a 6 8 page recommendation report (not including the table of contents etc.) providing information on what you have learned in your research and giving your conclusions and recommendations to your boss, so that he/she can make decisions based on the information you are providing.

Describe the problem Identify and carefully explain each part/component of the problem so that the audience fully understands the overall problem (or opportunity) and its underlying causes. If your audience accepts your explanation/analysis of the problem, it will be much more willing to consider your recommendations.

Provide evidence

This recommendation report includes secondary research, draws conclusions based on your research, and offers logical recommendations to solve the problem. Your report will follow the format listed below. Be sure to describe, explain and support with evidence your recommendations so that your audience can see how each component of the problem will be solved by your recommendations. Throughout the report, establish your credibility with appropriate evidence.

Target your arguments and evidence to the audience Direct your report to a specific, real audience and assume you work for the company, are a member of the organization, or are an outside consultant. While you will not be required to actually present your report to your audience, you want a product that you would be able to use if you wanted to. Do NOT pick a topic for a large multinational or a topic that would be very costly. You will lose marks if you do not pick an audience who would listen to you and consider your recommendations. See comments on this in the Assignment #2 description.
