I’m studying and need help with a Communications question to help me learn.
Im going to do a presentation about Diversity in the work place. But I need a recommendation report first to compile the results and do my presentaion.
The report instructions are:
1. Executive summary
– briefly introduce and summarize your purpose for this presentation. This section establishes audience expectations for what is to follow.
2. Problem Statement:
identify the problem clearly, providing a strong sense of need for the options you will explore in the rest of the presentation. This is where you justify the purpose of the presentation.
o To justify the options you recommend, you must first understand the specific needs of the business, organization, or stakeholders you are writing for (i.e. What does the organization need? Why? What is the background of this problem? Who are the major stakeholders? What has been tried in the past? Why didn’t it work?). Your Problem Statement will serve as your introduction to the options discussed in this report.
What options have you identified to address the problem?
o This is the heart of a recommendation report. In this section, describe three (3) possible ideas for solving the problem cited at the beginning of your report.
o Discuss pros, cons and costs. Explain more fully the benefits of the recommendation or steps to be taken to solve the problem. o Each option should include the following information: a cohesive, comprehensive overview of this option/idea; information about how this option answers the need cited at the beginning of your report; specific details about how this idea could be implemented; and justifications as to why this option will work. Final Recommendation: After describing and evaluating your options, recommend the option you think is best and provide a discussion of the reasons why you recommend it. In other words, defend your recommendation thoroughly in this section.
Re-emphasize the final recommendation and offer suggestions about how the audience/reader could move toward implementation.
