Justification Report –
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).
Write a two (2) pages, single-spaced
report in which you:
Describe in detail a
problem at work, persuading and convincing the reader that it needs fixing.
Provide a detailed
description of two (2) possible solutions (“alternatives”) that could be
implemented to resolve the problem identified in Question 1.
Describe five (5)
criteria that you will use to measure the worth of each alternative in
Criterion 2. Note: The alternative that satisfies the most criteria to the
highest degree will be the one you recommend later to your employer. 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).
Describe in detail how
you will conduct the research needed to determine the best recommended
alternative to your employer.
Be typed, single
spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all
sides; citations and references must follow APA format. 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.
