Executive summary – a couple of short paragraphs which summarize the remainder of the report
Background – use this section to lead in to your Problem Statement; identify symptoms, critical factors and the current state
Problem Statement – a succinct statement of the problem/dilemma/issue, preferably in a single declarative sentence; be careful to identify the real problem and not the symptoms of the problem
Analysis – apply operational models, course content, and outside research to support your position; logically discuss options, implications and tradeoffs
