Use the basic outline below to draft your paper. 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)
Write a two (2) page, 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.
