Proposal and Business Report Portfolio:
Your final portfolio for this course is a business report in which you analyze a problem or situation, conduct research, and based on the research; recommend a course of action for your audience. You get to choose your problem and organizational context you wish to write in, so if you want to analyze a problem in a real-world job context, you can, but you can also choose or modify ideas found at the end of the report chapter as well.
The portfolio will consist of several drafts of the project proposal, and several drafts of the report itself. We will conference twice on this project – once for me to review your proposal, approve your topic, and suggest changes, and once to review a draft of your report and suggest revisions.
A good report will:
· Follow the guidelines on report writing
· Use effective organization and document design
· Use sources effectively to construct and support your position
· Use effective and grammatically correct business style
· Use you-attitude and positive emphasis
· Use at least one visual, effectively
Prior to doing the business report itself, you will need to write a proposal in which you persuade your boss that the project you have in mind is necessary/useful and to convince them that you are prepared to take on the project.
In your proposal, you should identify what problem/situation you are trying to address and why it is useful to address this issue, as well as what questions you are attempting to answer, or what kind of information you will need to write your report.
You should also list and annotate 3 sources that you think will assist you in developing your proposal (your final report may use more than this number, but at the proposal stage, you will want to show that you have already done some preliminary research and thinking on this issue). Your annotations should summarize the source and explain what you think the source will contribute to your final report.
At the proposal stage, you should not necessarily know what course of action you are going to recommend – you are simply convincing your boss to let you work on the research report.
