For Business Administration and Related Streams How To Use The Business Report Template (version 1.0) Formal business reports are prepared in a different format than essays or other academic assignments. Preparing professional reports, and proposals, will help you communicate your ideas to your employers while also adding to your value as an employee. This is an important skill to develop and practice while here at Centennial. Business writing should involve three key steps: Planning Writing Completing Planning: - Analyzing the situation or topic. Defining the purpose, the “business problem” or “opportunity” that a report may address. Formulating a main message for your report - often this involves proposing a solution or response to the purpose. Developing an audience profile. - Gathering information . In other words, primary and secondary research, as required. - Organizing the information : Creating an outline or structure for the key points that need to be expressed. Writing: - Adapting to the audience . Developing a tone or style that is sensitive to audience needs while projecting and protecting your organization’s image and/or brand. - Composing the message : Follow the outline prepared earlier, using carefully constructed paragraphs and sentences. Identify or create any visual or graphic representations of data that you want to use. Completing: - Revising: Proofread and edit for spelling, grammar and typographical errors. Re-write for conciseness and clarity. To assist you with the formatting of such documents, we have prepared a template that you can use to guide you through the report preparation process. Download the template. Save one “master “ copy to use again in the future. Save a new copy with a new file name that reflects your report or assignment. Instructions are given and highlighted in yellow. Read all instructions and delete them when you no longer need them.

Replace all other elements (titles, headings, sample text, etc.) with YOUR content, as instructed. When you finish using the template, the final document should contain your own original work, formatted as a standard business report. All instructions or examples given in this template should be either deleted or replaced with your own content.

Instructions for the cover page: The next page is a cover page and contains the report title (mandatory), a subtitle (optional) and information on the author, the intended audience (in this case, a professor), and the date it was prepared. Every business report should have a title that reflects its content or “main message”. The title should be in the same font as the body of your work, but at least twice as large as your regular text. It should be centred, bold, underlined and should appear about one third to halfway down the page from the top.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
