writing assignment #5, we continue with steps in planning for an organizing the
analytical report. You will want to read the instructions for the analytical report so that
you have an idea of what types of topics to consider as you construct your
outline for the report. For this assignment, you will write an outline, along
with some other brief explanations, for the plan for your analytical report.
Conflict Resolution at the Workplace For your outline, you will submit the following
items: statement of the problem — This section should be one or two sentences
stating the problem you are addressing. purpose and scope of the work — This
section should be one paragraph explaining why you have conducted your
analysis. You will state why you think the problem you are addressing needs to
be addressed. decision-maker or group of decision-makers– This section will
identify the individual or individuals to whom you are directing the report.
sources and methods of data collection — This section should be one paragraph explaining how you went about gathering data. You might mention interviews you
conducted, searches you conducted in OneSearch, or other methods of information
gathering you used. preliminary outline — This section should use Roman
numerals to outline, even roughly, the plan for the report. You might have, for example, Roman number I,
with A, B, and C under it; Roman number II, with A, B, and C under it, and
Roman numeral III with A, B, and C under it. Overall, you should not need more
than three or four Roman numerals. Again, this can even be a fairly rough outline. Do not feel you have
to stick with the outline you have developed when you write your actual report.
Length: The outline has no word count minimum or maximum. It should be one to
two pages long.
