Instructions for Executive Interview Please note the instructions on page 4 of the syllabus for the Executive Interview. The following instructions will further explain the project. In order to receive the full 25 points for the project, you must tape record your interview with your chosen manager and turn in that tape along with your executive summary and transcript. Beginning on page 2 is an example of the Executive Interview. This is the format that you must use. The executive summary, which describes the company of the chosen manager, must be at least two pages in length, 12-point font, Times New Roman script, one-inch margins, double-spaced. Your spelling, grammar, and punctuation must be error free to receive the full 30 points. Your vocabulary or word choice must be businesslike in tone as well. The transcript should follow the executive summary as in the attached example. You must use the exact form in the example. Bold the author’s questions as in the example. Do not bold the managers replies. The transcript must be at least five pages in length, 12-point font, Times New Roman script, one-inch margins, double-spaced. Therefore, you must turn in a project of at least 7 pages in length. You may exceed seven pages. You must ask the questions listed as Executive Interview Elicitation Questions. These questions have been posted in Blackboard since the beginning of the semester. If you do not use these questions, you will not receive the full 25 points for the project. Additionally, as you do the interview you can add additional questions. Sometimes, respondents give short, one-word answers. If this occurs, you must ask the question again, re-phrase the question, and ask again. 1

Do not be shy because the project depends on this. You must get the respondent to talk for at least five pages. The only exception to the list of questions, the Executive Interview Elicitation Questions, is the family business section. If you find that the business is not a family business, you may skip questions 2 through 5 in this section only. The questions used in the Jackson Interview serve as an example only of the form you are to use, not the content. Please note that you must inform me in writing of your manager choice for the interview by Thursday, October 27. The complete report is due Tuesday, November 15. I will not accept reports after this date. 2
