Exercises

Exercise 1. Review questions:

  1. What are the preliminary sections of a formal report?
  2. What is the difference between:
  3. cover page and a title page?
  4. a letter of authorization and a cover letter?
  5. Describe the main parts of the report.
  6. What should the tone of your recommendations be?
  7. Describe the supplementary material.
  8. What is the difference between a bibliography and a glossary?
  9. What are the main rules of a report presentation?

Exercise 2. Selection of material will be easier if the information you have assembled is well organised. Read the following, badly organised, text and then complete the task.

Promotion procedures

All managers should have a promotion review every two years. This does not mean that promotion cannot take place in the interim. However, promotion is normally gained after the promotion review session.
The procedure for conducting a promotion review is that the promotion review panel meets after having received SOPs (Standards of Performance) from all departments. Before asking the employee in for an informal interview, the review panel meet and discuss each employee. The panel should analyse not only the employees past record but also his or her potential in the future. This will mean that the panel must have previously obtained up-to-date information on promotion possibilities. When they have done all this, they can invite the employee to an informal interview.
The informal interview should aim to assess the employees own expectations and ambitions. Having completed this session, the panel should meet privately to decide on recommendations which are finally submitted to the Board.

These six stages are in the wrong order. Put the identifying letter for each stage in one of the boxes so that they are in the correct order:

a) review panel second meeting d) recommendations to Board
b) information interview e) receive promotion possibility update
c) review panel first meeting f) receive SOPs
