Backqround and Scenario:The scenario for writing assignments #1, #2, and #3 continue.

The company CEO has approved your proposal. Now is time to get to work on the report (Writing Assignment #7)


Using your proposal as a starting point, develop the Business Report with Recommendations (Writing Assignment #3) that you proposed.

Use the format in Chapter 19 of the text for your report (see the guidance above, also, for format and length).

As with your proposal, use document design techniques, diagrams, photos, and other visuals to comply with the CEO’s guidance.

NOTE: This proposal and the Report (Writing Assignment #7) is an individual, not a group assignment, but you are encouraged to share resources and discuss any phase of the report with classmates. See the “Discuss Paper #7” thread for an area to discuss this project!

REMINDER: Continue to use the hypothetical company and the country you selected for writing assignment #1 (Memo with documented research).
