Case 2

26 Nov

All case studies should be submitted in the form of a “Managerial Report”. A Managerial Report is usually a response to a senior manager or “executive board” which has raised an “issue” that needs to be analyzed with accompanying recommendations.  The senior manager or “board” will subsequently make a decision based upon the analyses. As a consequence, the Managerial Report should written in “third Person” format, provide a coherent flow of information concentrating on the technical “facts” and void of “opinions”, and in a format and tenor to be easily understood by the decision maker(s)


The report format should include:

An “Executive Overview”: A succinct but comprehensible description of the overall problem being addressed

An “Executive Summary”: A brief statement which contains the primary & secondary conclusions and recommendations of the study

Analysis Section

Underlying assumptions of the model & analyses

Structured for easy validation/comprehension by subsequent readers

Summary graphs and tables with details referenced in order to the appendices

Sensitivity Analyses on assumptions/results

Conclusions/Recommendations Section

Summary of results considered important to the final decisions that need to be made

The recommended top and alternate (if applicable) recommendation(s)


Detailed models outputs

Spread sheets

Data tables for all analyses (usually too detailed for containing in document body).
