Grammar and style.  Papers must be written in proper English.  Avoid colloquialisms, slang, contractions, sexist language, etc.  Good grammar and appropriate style are essential; papers using poor grammar and style will lose points.  Write in a narrative style; third person probably will be best, but use “I” when you refer to your thoughts, interpretations, observations, opinions, etc. 

 

SAMPLE Executive Summary

 

The organization selected is Cool Sonic International, Inc., which operates its headquarters in California and a subsidiary in Australia.  The company produces automotive audio amplifiers designed to be placed in the door compartments and the rear deck thereby providing space in the dash for other components i.e. GPS, cell phone, computer, DVD, etc.

 

The human relations model is based on a combination of Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs and McGregor’s Y Theory.  Although each department has specific tasks, the overall approach focuses on the goals of the organization and the variety of methods to reach each of the goals.   The engineering and marketing departments have the greatest flexibility in determining the approach to completing their projects.  The Controller is required to follow certain federal, state, local, and business requirements, which limits their flexibility and yet the team appears to enjoy their jobs.

 

Communication is a major issue as the time zones are not the same.  California is half way through its work day before Australia begins working, and it is the next day for Australia.  The “tyranny-of-distance” is overcome with frequent emails and teleconferences, with occasional in-country visits.

 

There are intercultural issues. Culturally there is a clash between the marketing department in the USA and engineering department in Australia.  The USA pace is faster than the Australians which tends to be “NO WORRIES MATE!”  

 

Ethically the company has some trust concerns.  The headquarter company is structured separately from the subsidiary, which is located in Australia, with each company complying with separate federal, state, and local regulations.  Although the Chair and the President are represented on each Board of Directors, there is uneasiness with the relationship. 

 

All of the departments recognize the objective of the company is to produce an audio amplifier which supports the next generation sound system.  Cool Sonic International, Inc. continues to strive to build a Class D audio amplifier for the automotive industry.
