Appendix 2:
Final report outline
The final report should include the following sections:
Title or Cover page
Please refer to Appendix 7.
Preface
A preface serves to state your reasons for conducting the research project and other personal comments that are not directly relevant to the materials presented in other sections of the report (e.g., personal experiences of the research process). A preface also serves to acknowledge and thank the people who contributed time and effort to your research.
Executive summary
The executive summary provides a summary of the entire report. As such the executive summary can be seen as a mini-version of the report, which can be read independently of the full report. An executive summary should be no longer than 2 pages.
Table of contents
The table of contents lists all parts of your report and their page numbers, in the order in which they appear.
List of tables, diagrams, and illustrations
This section provides a list of all figures and table numbers, together with their corresponding page numbers.
Introduction
The Introduction explains the central issue of concern in your research and the reasons why this issue was worth investigating. It also gives a brief introduction into the company context, the outline of the problem that you intended to address with this research, and an explanation of why it was relevant to be addressed (purpose and significance). The literature review closed with a Theoretical or Conceptual framework
In the literature review you identify and discuss the appropriate academic and or professional fields of literature, aimed at developing an approach (conceptual framework) towards your research. For the identification of appropriate literature it is important that you relate the problem to the literature used in the IB curriculum, and review their references.
Research questions
Here you should first introduce (in a few sentences) the arguments that lead to your central research question, and then state your central research question and sub-questions. It is important that the sub-questions are linked (and “feed into”) to the central research question.
Methodology
In this section you give a detailed description and justification of the design and data collection methods that you used in gathering secondary and primary data. Make sure this section reflects what you actually did (and why), not what you had planned to do.
Data analysis and findings
In this section you are to present and analyse your findings, describing what you found out from the secondary and primary research and what it means for your research problem. Be aware that a summary of data is not good enough, as you will have to discuss your analysis and interpretations of the data in order to determine the findings and to show how your findings answer the sub-questions.
Consolidated Analysis
Per theme, you compare & contrast the findings from the literature review and field research (both qualitative and quantitative), and interpret these findings (what do they mean for the sponsor, how do they help you answer your RQs).
Conclusions
The conclusions summarize the main argument and provide the answer to your central research question. Note that your conclusions should not present any new information, but logically follow from the findings. You also discuss the limitations of your research, assessing the validity of your conclusions.
Recommendations
In the final section of your report you are to propose any courses of action (supported by your findings and conclusions) that your sponsor company could take to address the research problem. In the final section of your report you are to state the practical and theoretical implications of your conclusions. The practical implications relate to suggestions as to what courses of action the sponsor should take to address (resolve) the business problem. Theoretical implications refer to suggestions as to what further research might usefully build upon the findings in order to validate your conclusions and (practical) recommendations.
Works cited
Here you are to provide a list of all works that you referenced in the foregoing sections of your research report. Note that you must use the APA style (for both in-text referencing and the “works cited” list).
Appendices
The Appendices contain those parts of report that do not contribute directly to the main text, but need to be included for completeness (e.g., focus group and interview guides, transcripts, codebook, etc.).
Appendix 3: Report requirements
– Layout (from MS Word):

Do not directly quote more than 120 words from any 1 source.
If the source is 2,000 words or less, do not directly quote more than 50 words from it.
Do not use the same source more than a total of 3 times within the whole document for
quoting or paraphrasing.
Quotes must contain the section (if provided) and paragraph or page numbers of the quote
and this information must be placed in the reference.
In all instances, use current APA guidelines for citations and references.

After completing all sections, the final section and the conclusion should provide an opinion as to the overall assessment of the organization.

Turn in your complete organizational assessment. Be sure to update any section given the comments of the professor. After completing all sections, the final section and the conclusion should provide an opinion as to the overall assessment of the organization.
The paper should be 15-20 pages not counting the cover page or the reference list, but not much longer. Sections can be edited down and extraneous or duplicative information should be removed. (Comapny is Apple)
Make as much referneces are needed. If you need more then 18 its okey if you need less then 18 its also okey

When the student is presenting, the other members of our class will assume the role of the funding source.

During the semester, students will be exposed to the components, importance and purpose of constructing a business plan for a small business. Towards the end of our semester, we will convert our classroom into a simulated funding lab. Students will be given an opportunity to explain their own business plan to either equity investors or a financial lending institution (the funding source). When the student is presenting, the other members of our class will assume the role of the funding source. Members of the funding source will interact with the presenting student by delivering questions/or clarifications which they believe is necessary in order to make a funding decision. The dynamics of the interactive funding lab is intended to simulate the real live events an individual will experience when seeking funding for their new small business.
