Assessment:

Write a Problem Analysis Report.

Use the format provided in the Problem Analysis Overview as your guide for developing your own Problem Analysis Report.  To see a completed example, review the Sample Problem Analysis Report for Teldon Facilities.

Note that this Report needs to address a practical problem, one which you can personally influence changing. It should be a problem in the your workforce, neighborhood, organization, etc. Or you could have chosen to make up a problem from scenario you created.

Regardless, make sure your problem is narrow enough that you can collect first hand data, by conducting interviews, review records, conducting onsite investigations, etc. I should have already approved you problem. If you have not approved your problem, please e-mail me your problem before you begin the Problem Analysis Report.

Note: The Problem Analysis will be a separate grade; also, it will be part of your Feasibility Report.

Since it is part of your Feasibility Report, I need to know that you have a problem that can be researched, that it is written in the correct format, and that it has practical recommendations.
