In most business situations there are no right or wrong answers, but instead a range of possible solutions. You will pick the one that seems best to you and then defend your position. Most ugba-10 papers contain many good ideas, but suffer from poor organization. Here's how to improve your writing. While you are reading the background material, make notes in any order—a jumble of ideas on a scrap of paper is fine. Then get some distance (take a break). Then, when you come back to your paper, try this approach: If you chatting with a friend at another school, what would you say it the main point that you would want to make in your paper? Ideally, you should be both responsive to the question, but also stand out from your peers because of some insight or particularly effective way of communicating your point of view.
