Assignment Introduction

This section sets the context for the report and provides the (brief) background information required for the reader to understand the report.

Note: Detailed company background should not be included here. It is best discussed in the body of the report

This tells the reader what the aims/objectives of the report are. It indicates what key questions the report is trying to answer and what it is trying to achieve. Why was it written?

Tell the reader exactly what areas/ideas are covered in the report. This also helps to explain how the report is organized. Look at your plan and consider your headings and sub-headings.

Learners may use their own employment context, or that of another organisation with which they are very familiar, to base their assignment. However, in the case that they are not able to do so, please use the below scenario: -

You have been asked to review your organisational strategic plan to establish if suitable progress is being made to meet the organisation’s strategic objectives. Analysis of internal and external factors affecting the plan is part of your remit and it has been suggested you examine options to meet the plan which are more effective and cost efficient. From your analysis you need to justify your recommendations and so, valid and realistic options need to be produced.
