Guidelines
Executive Summary
You are expected to write one page (approximately 500 words) of an executive summary. The
executive summary is not to introduce your report but should be a summary of the whole report.
You will therefore need to write this after you complete your report.
It should include what your identified issues were, and what your purpose of the report was. You
are required to discuss how your report would impact on main stakeholders. You should also
summarise your critical evaluation results.
Your executive summary should be concluded by any recommendations, making up the final part of
your executive summary.
Your readers should be able to understand the focus of your project just by reading the executive
summary.
Introduction
You could write this section with three different areas. The first area can be used to explain the
context of your consultancy report.
The second part could be used to briefly discuss the current issues in your selected company. This
area will be the summary of next section but you need to set the scene here.
The final part of this section will need to include how the report will be structured, and what your
readers can expect to take from your report.
Challenge / problems the client is facing
You could discuss existing or potential future issues caused by current affairs.
If you decide to discuss current / existing issue(s), you would need to evaluate why your chosen
company [client company] has been facing these issues and connect these issues to current affairs.
If you would like to discuss possible future issues which might occur because of the current affairs,
you would need to discuss, as consultant’ perspective, why your client company might face challenges
in future because of current affairs.
Purpose of the report
You would need to state the purpose of the report. You could explain why you are evaluating
specific issues and how this would benefit your client company. Your purpose of the report should
be justified by the identified issues established in the section 2. Your purpose of the report will form
the question you later evaluate and suggest recommendations for.

Impact of Research on Stakeholders
In this section, you will firstly need to identify who your internal and external stakeholders are in
relation to your report. You will also need to discuss how your project is connected to different
groups of internal and external stakeholders, and finally evaluate how your project would impact
these stakeholders.
Evaluation and analysis with secondary data for your purpose of the report
This section is to show your critical evaluation skills.
You would need to collect secondary data and analyse the data to answer your purpose of the
report. You could include tables or charts using existing data you have collected if you wish to. You
should ensure that sources of data are referenced correctly.
For the critical evaluation, you may be able to use theoretical frameworks or evaluate data you
collected without specific frameworks. However, you need to remember that you would need to
compare and contrast different data and discuss how different data shows different perspective for
your purpose of the report.
Recommendations and Conclusions
Your recommendations should be justified by the results of your analysis and critical evaluation, and
you must also ensure that these recommendations are connected to your purpose of the report. It
may be helpful for your readers if you remind them in this section what your purpose of the report
was, and how this has been answered by your recommendations.
For the conclusion, you will need to address the key issues you have evaluated and how you have
answered the purpose of your report. You should use evidence from the previous sections to
support your conclusion.
Presentation
You should use the Harvard referencing system throughout the report and make sure there are no
errors in spelling or grammar. You will need to use academic writing and your language should be
clear and precise.
Your report must use a consistent approach to headings, tables and graphs. Pages should be clearly
numbered, and this should correspond to the page numbers provided in the table of contents.
You will need to show a broad range of reading including academic journal articles.
