· Note on the Executive Summary: It should include:
o 2 to 3 sentence overview of the firm
o Brief statement of the situation/problem
o Your recommendation. Include important numbers in the recommendation, but do not show how they are calculated (the calculations should be in an appendix).
o The executive summary should be about ¾ page to 1 page. The intent is that if an executive read only the executive summary, they should be able to understand the situation, the problem, and your recommendations, without reading the rest of the report.
