How to Write an Executive Summary

Front Cover
University of Ottawa Press, 1990 - Business & Economics - 114 pages
This book explains, in simple and straightforward terms, that the executive summary is not just short, it is concise; it is not just condensed, it is exact. The reader of a well-written executive summary is able to act instantly and responsibly on the basis of the relevant, accurate, and time-efficient information it encapsulates. The message of this book is clear: anything short of precision will not do; anything longer wastes time.
