Assessment Instructions
Note: You must complete Assessments 1–4 before you can complete this assessment.
If you have not yet done so, read the Integrated Action Learning Project description linked in the Resources
under the Required Resources heading.
For this assessment, create an executive summary for your project proposal.
An executive summary should be understood easily by an audience not familiar with your full proposal. At a
glance, someone reading this brief summary should be able to understand the most important points. The
ideal executive summary is a half-page to one page in length, although it should be on the shorter end of that
range. The executive summary should be written in a more formal business tone and should include key
pieces of information, such as facts, figures, and ideas that are critical to your proposal.
The executive summary should accomplish the following:
Describe the background of the project and the details of how it was initiated.
Describe the business objectives for the project.
Describe the project scope.
Analyze the project to identify all milestones and determine deliverable dates.
Determine risks and develop a communication plan for stakeholders.
Be sure to properly cite all references using APA style.
