Your job is to choose the most appropriate type of report (informational or analytical) and the best approach (direct or indirect) and compose a draft of approximately 1 to 1-1/2 pages (500-750 words).
The company you work for is considering upgrading all its end user computer equipment (desktop and laptop computers, monitors, and printers). You have been asked to prepare a report regarding the differences between purchasing and leasing the equipment. Relevant information for your report includes the following:
- The company currently has 100 employees, but it is growing.
- Approximately 30% of the employees need laptops instead of desktops.
- The building has five main work group areas, each of which has a dedicated high volume printer. A total of seven executives and their respective admin support personnel have dedicated printers, and Human Resources also has its own dedicated printer.
- There is very limited IT support within the company (only two full time staffers).
- The CFO generally prefers not to have large cash outlays.
• Software is not required
This exercise begins with information for an IT Consultant Business Startup. Working in Microsoft Project, you will create the task list, including summary tasks and their sub-tasks, create links between tasks and their predecessors, add resources, and make changes to the original plan. Each student is required to submit their own, unique Project file.
- Enter the tasks, including the specified duration, specified predecessors, and specified resources from the View in a new windowHW9Data filePreview the documentView in a new window. Make the Start date of the project: June 30, 2017.
- Your business in charge of the IT Consultant Business Startup will be observing some holidays during the span of the project. They will take the following days off:
The week of the 4th of July
The week of Labor Day
Be sure to enter the working exceptions for these holidays through the working time of the project, not through individual tasks or resources. After you make your corrections, identify the Original Finish Date for the entire project. Save the baseline at this point.
- Your CEO feels the cost for the project to be excessive. Due to other projects planned, the CEO has asked for you to reduce the total cost for the project. The target budget for this operation is $55,000. Think carefully about the duration of the tasks and the resources required to make the project a success. Document the changes (ID number, task name, duration change, resource change, etc.) you plan on making to get the project under $55,000. (Reducing personnel wages and number of required resources is not permitted for this project.) Justify why you made the changes you did. Identify the new final cost of the project.
For your written response to B and C, submit a Word document. Remember to make your changes in response to C in the project.
Complete the table for Homework for Unit 10 Homework Practice Problems. After you determine your annual salary, divide by 12 to get monthly salary and base budget for monthly expenses.

Your CEO, Rebecca Clary, will be meeting with the company’s Board of Directors, a group of 5 people who ensure the company is running smoothly. The meeting is in one week and she cannot wait for your completed analytical business report (see Module 10). She needs a short report immediately so that she can prepare a presentation for the board of directors.
Your task is to write a 2-3 page memo report discussing the reasons why the company is investigating more flexible work practices, the methodology for determining the most appropriate work practice, and the results of your research to date. Use the survey data provided in Module 10 to construct at least two (2) graphs (effective visuals) in Excel. Then insert the Excel graphs into your memo under the appropriate heading. Be sure to include relevant discussion of each graph, citing both primary and secondary sources.
Use standard business memo format

This project relies on multiple regression analysis to analyze a data set that is of interest to you. The final report for the project should be a 5-10 page single-spaced paper that describes the questions of interest, how you used your data set to analyze these questions with details on the steps you used in your analysis, your findings about your question of interest and the limitations of your study. Specifically, your report should contain the following:
Introduction. The introduction succinctly states the problem you are interested in, briefly describes your data and the method of analysis, and summarizes your main conclusions. A summary of what you set out to learn, and what you ended up finding. It should summarize the entire report.
Data Description. This section provides the details of the data sources, any transformations you have done to the data (for example, changing the units of some variables), gives a table of summary statistics (means and standard deviations) of the variables, and provides scatterplots and/or other relevant plots of the data. If there are outliers other than those arising from corrected typographical or computer errors, this is the place to point them out.
Regression Analysis. Describe how you used multiple regression to analyze the data set. Specifically, you should discuss how you carried out the steps in analysis discussed in class, i.e., exploration of data to find an initial reasonable model, checking the model and changes to the model based on your checking of the model.
Empirical Results. This section provides the main empirical results in the paper. Conventionally, regression results are presented in tabular form, with footnotes clearly explaining the entries. The initial table of results should present the main results; sensitivity analysis using alternative specifications can be presented in additional columns in that table or in subsequent tables. For organizational purposes and clarity, you may chose to have some tables at the end of the paper, with appropriate references in the body of the paper as needed. The text should provide a careful discussion of the results, including assessments both of statistical significance and of economic significance, that is, the magnitude of the estimated relations in a real-world sense.
Summary and Discussion. This section summarizes your main empirical findings and discusses their implications for the original question of interest. Describe any limitations of your study and how they might be overcome in future research and provide brief conclusions about the results of your study.
My proposal file is after proofreading
I would like to tell you this last chance for me to succeed.
I also hope you will work and adjust all the supervisor’s notes.
This are my supervisor feedback you must address all of them
Introduction could be (much) more closely geared to explaining the contents of the proposal. It is actually a ‘background to intended field of research.
Aims and Objectives could be more precise.
Theoretical Literature Review would be improved with the inclusion of an introductory sentence to explain what the review covers (and why )
Empirical Literature Review could be more closely related to what has been tested, what the results were and how they relate to your Research Questions and forthcoming Methodology. A summary table of key (relevant) findings would have been useful.
Measurement of Variables Looks like the intended dependent variables will be ROA, Tobin’s Q and ROE and the dependent variables will be Board size, Board independence and Audit Committee size. The explanation could be clearer, though.
Control Variables Firm size and leverage are explained adequately but ‘industry’ is not.
Hypotheses are not stated in the traditional manner (Ho and Ha).
Methodology Any reason for choosing 2012 to 2016 for data? Again, the ‘industry’ variable could be explained more clearly.
Population and data . Any reason for selecting 65 companies?
Research Ethics ‘Human respondents
