Assignment 2.1: Justification
Report – Part 1

In Assignments 2.1,
2.2, and 2.3, you will be building up a formal, researched justification report
(one part at a time) that culminates in a recommendation to implement a
particular product, service, or program in your place of employment. This
recommended product, service, or program should resolve a problem that you
identify in your workplace and should be directed to your employer (even if you
do not actually plan to share it with your employer).

Use the basic outline
below to draft Assignment 2. Organize your responses to each question under the
following section headings:

· 
Problem Statement (for
Question 1)

· 
Overview of
Alternatives (for Question 2)

· 
Criteria (for Question
3)

· 
Methods (for Question
4)

Using the provided
template, write Part 1 of a single-spaced report in which you:

1.  Discuss in detail a problem at work,
persuading and convincing the reader that it needs fixing.

2.  Provide a detailed description of two (2)
possible solutions (“alternatives”) that could be implemented to resolve the
problem identified in Question 1.

3.  List and detail five (5) criteria that you
will use to measure the worth of each alternative in Question 2. Note: The alternative that satisfies the most
criteria to the highest degree will be the one you recommend later to your
employer (in Assignment 2.3). Criteria are standards that the audience values
and are therefore used to measure the worth of each alternative (common
examples include cost, desirability, durability, efficiency, time it will take
to implement, and practicality).

4.  Describe in detail how you will conduct the
research needed to determine the best alternative to recommend to your
employer. Note: This is a one to two
(1-2) paragraph description of what research needs to be completed in order to
evaluate the alternatives. This is not a detailed procedure for solving the
problem.

Your assignment must:

· 
Be typed, single
spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all
sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format.
Check with your professor for any additional instructions.

· 
Include a cover page
containing the title of the assignment, your name, the professor’s name, the
course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not
included in the required assignment page length.

Assignment 2.2: Justification
Report – Part 2

In Part 1 of your Justification Report assignment, you built up the following
sections: Problem Statement, Overview of Alternatives, Criteria, and Methods.
In Part 2, you will revise Part 1 based on your instructor’s suggestions and
add to it the following sections: Evaluation of Alternatives, Findings and
Analysis, and References.

Use the basic outline below to draft your paper. Organize your responses to
each question under the following section headings:

· 
Evaluation of
Alternatives (for Questions 1-3)

· 
Findings and Analysis
(for Questions 4-5)

· 
References (for
Question 6)

Using the provided template, write Part 2 of a single-spaced report in which
you:

1.  Include and revise the sections from
Assignment 2.1 (Problem Statement, Overview of Alternatives, Criteria, and
Methods) per instructor suggestions.

2.  Research the two (2) alternatives (i.e.
possible solutions) that you’ve identified in your Part 1 Evaluation of
Alternatives section. Record bibliographic information during research.

a. 
Example: You might
research other organizations that have attempted similar solutions to the
problem you have identified and explore the results of those experiments. 

3.  Use what you discover in your research to
evaluate each alternative by each of your five (5) criteria.

a. 
Example: If your
research revealed that four (4) companies similar to yours increased
productivity after allowing their workers to telework from home three days per
week, you might conclude that one of your suggested alternatives – in this
case, the option to telework from home three days per week – satisfies one of
your criterion of “Productivity” as a high-potential solution to a problem
you’ve identified (of decreased worker morale and productivity at Doe’s
Electronics). However, additional research might frustrate a recommendation of
this alternative if it is found to fall short of other criteria while a second
alternative fares better. For instance, a telework alternative might be found
to be too costly to implement; too frustrating for consumers who prefer daily,
in-person customer service; or too divergent from the company’s brand, “Always
there for you!”

4.  Organize the assignment by your criteria.
Explain in narrative form how each of your two (2) alternatives stacks up
against your first criterion. Next, explain how each alternative stacks up
against your second criterion, etc.

o  Example: An abbreviated outline of what this
longer section might look like based on the above example is below (Note: Only the first two [2] of five [5] required
criteria are included to give you a feel for the structure). Your researched
findings, represented as circled bullets below, should be explained in two to
five (2-5) sentences. Include in-text citations and follow up with References
in APA style):

Evaluation of Alternatives
Productivity

b. 

o  Alternative A: Telework from home three (3)
days per week

o  {narrate findings based on research article 1
here}

o  Alternative B: Offer two (2) extra Floating
Holidays to each employee per year

o  {narrate findings based on research article 2
here}

o  Cost

d. 

o  Alternative A: Telework from home three (3)
days per week

o  {narrate findings based on research article 1
here}

o  Alternative B: Offer two extra Floating
Holidays to each employee per year

o 

o  {narrate findings based on research article 2
here}

5. 
Briefly summarize in
narrative form the major discoveries that emerged from the Evaluation of
Alternatives section.

6.  Include a chart like the ones below to
illustrate at a glance:

8. 
Include an APA style
(6th edition) References page that documents the two (2) sources (minimum) that
you used and cited in-text in your Evaluation of Alternatives section. You may
use secondary resources, or you may include one primary source and one secondary
source. Remember that both in-text citations and References must be included
(to avoid plagiarism) whenever you are directly quoting, summarizing, or
paraphrasing researched material.

Your assignment must:

· 
Be typed, single spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12),
with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or
school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional
instructions.

Assignment 2.3:
Justification Report – Part 3 (Final)

In Assignments 2.1 (Part
1) and 2.2 (Part 2) of the Justification Report, you built up the major parts
of your formal, researched justification report (Problem Statement, Overview of
Alternatives, Criteria, Methods, Evaluation of Alternatives, Findings and
Analysis, and References). For Part 3 you will begin by inserting your
revisions of Parts 1 and 2 based on your instructor’s suggestions. Then, you
will include a few new sections. Note: Some sections presented
below are out of order so pay attention to where the section should go (for
instance, the Transmittal should be the second page of your report based on the
provided template). It is essential that you present the final report in the
correct section order.

Use the basic outline
below to draft your paper. Organize your responses to each question under the
following section headings:

  • Preliminary Parts (for Question 1)
  • Introduction (for Question 2)

· 

    • Problem Statement (for Question 2b)
    • Terminology (for Question 2c)
    • Major Sections of the Report (for Question 2d)
    • Scope and Limitations of the Research (for Question
      2e)
  • Recommendation (for Question 3)
  • References (for Question 4)

Using the provided
template from Week 7, write Part 3 to complete a single-spaced report in which
you:

  1. Create the preliminary parts of the report that precede
    the Introduction (after reading Chapter 11 in the textbook). Each element
    (1a to 1d) appears on a separate page (1a should be page 1, 1b should be
    page 2, etc.). The preliminary part includes:
    1. Title Page
    2. Transmittal (stand-alone business letter)
    3. Table of Contents
    4. Executive Summary
  2. Create an introduction that tells what your report is
    about. The introduction includes:
    1. Begin with a general introduction paragraph that gives
      the reader any needed background information on the company or problem.
    2. Include the Problem Statement that you already created
      and revised in Part 1.
    3. Include terms that readers will need to know in order
      to understand the report.
    4. Briefly summarize the major sections and findings of
      the report developed in Parts 1 and 2. Note: This is in
      addition to including the revised sections not instead of including the
      revised previous sections from Parts 1 and 2.
    5. Discuss what your report will cover and what it will
      not (including limitations such as research, time, information, or any
      other factors the reader should consider when reading the report).
  3. Create the Recommendation section of the Report.
    1. Provide a one to two (1-2) sentence recommendation
      based on what your Evaluation of Alternatives and Findings and Analysis
      sections have determined is the most feasible alternative (i.e.,
      solution) to the problem in the Problem Statement.
  4. Create the References section, which goes at the end of
    the Report by pasting in your revised References page.

Note: Remember to organize the report by the section
headings. The report should reflect a style and format appropriate for
business; single spacing and bullet points are acceptable for formal business
reports.

Your assignment must:

  • Be typed, single spaced, using Times New Roman font
    (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references
    must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for
    any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the
    assignment, your name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the
    date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the
    required assignment page length.

The specific course
learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Support ideas or claims in body paragraphs with clear
