You need to produce a Project Report describing the project you have completed. Meet with your Academic Supervisor to ensure that you produce a report that meets the expectations of the specific project you have been working on. The report should clearly indicate the background of your project and clearly show what methods you have used to complete the project. It should also discuss the outcomes and recommendations clearly. You should also show how you have obtained any evidence to support your approach to complete this project. Evidence could include research literature, technical reports, textbooks, news reports, business magazines, conversations with relevant people, and other relevant documentation. Applied business projects are diverse in nature and you should have a discussion with your Academic Supervisor to agree on the appropriate elements and headings to be included in the report before you prepare the document. Your methods and analysis should be robust and aligned with the purpose of the project. You may also include diagrams to support your report. Remember that this Project Report must be suitable for presentation to an organisation.
