Designing a Specific Change – Paper: One of the assignments you will likely be tasked with fairly frequently as a young professional is to synthesize and summarize specific information to brief senior management operatives. The key in doing so is to remain clear, brief, and straight- forward in doing so in order to pass along the key points effectively.
