After reading the assigned pages from the Victoria Business School’s “Example of a Finished Report,” you will answer a series of questions. Your responses should run 1-2 sentences per question. These questions will help you prepare for your own business report. Provide feedback for one classmate’s answers.

Please download the document, “How to Write a Business Report,” from Victoria University. The document is linked to in Content for Week 3.

Please access page 26 of the document, “An Example of a Finished Report.”

Review the report, which covers pages 27-41.

Please respond to this discussion topic by answering the following questions. Your answers can be 1-2 sentences:

  1. What problem is the author addressing?
  2. Where in the report does the author cite secondary research? You can mention one or two pages.
  3. What types of primary research does the author cite in the report? You can give one or two examples. (You will not use primary research for your later writing assignments, the proposal memo and research report; however, it’s important that you know how and why this research is used in business reports.)
  4. Consider your Research-Based Report for this class. What problem might you address in your workplace, school, or community?
