Provide the results of the study. The major findings may include a number of sentences. The recommendations (if applicable) should also be provided. Edit the summary to remove minor points; judgement is required to ensure that the summary is concise. Remove unnecessary words and sentences. Check accuracy of grammar, spelling, sentence and paragraph structures. Use formatting and graphics to highlight the message. Clarity of the summary can be improved through usage of bullet points and subtitles in the organisational structure. This will also make it easier for the reader to skim read.

Griffith University 1 April 2011 - 1 - CRICOS No. 00233E Process involved in writing an Executive Summary The executive summary is normally not more than a page in length and should provide an adequate representation of the entire document in a shortened form. The executive summary is provided on a separate page at the beginning of the report before the Table of Contents. An impersonal writing style is used so as to ensure that the report remains formal especially if the audience is your manager or supervisor. At least one sentence is provided for each main section of the report The key points in the executive summary should be presented in the identical order as they appear in the report so as to encourage logical flow and cohesion. It may be useful to write the executive summary after you have written the whole report so that it more accurately reflects the content of the report. Avoid recycling sentences or paragraphs from the body of the report as this can be repetitious for the reader. Remember to look at ‘Report Writing’ and ‘Writing in the Third Person’ for more information about making strategic and useful notes. Further Reading Project Proposal <Project Title> Page 3

    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.
