Identifying cultural differences to internationalize Getama Furniture Company from Denmark to Australia and analyse its managerial Implications.
Title page and table of contents
The title page must conform to that shown in Appendix 1, and the official title of your assignment should be clearly indicated. A short, powerful sub-title can be used together with the official title on the title page. The page following the title page should contain the table of contents including the page numbers on which each identified section begins.
Statement of the problem
The organisation of the report must be systematic and clearly structured so that it is easy to read and understand the content of the report and to give a clear answer to the questions stated in the statement of the problem.
Thus, it is sometimes fruitful to divide the introductory section into several subsections, depending on how comprehensive the introduction is.
The report ought to begin with a discussion of the topic’s possible interpretations. The premises lying behind the chosen interpretation must be clearly indicated. Please, note that an interpretation of quality is not just a repeat of the report’s title. The section ought to state the problem precisely so that the reader knows what the report intends to cover. It is also important that the statement of the problem is not just a repeat of the table of contents. In fact, the statement of the problem should be seen as an argument for why the table of contents is set out the way it is.
Statement of the problem
In the statement of the problem, it is important that the author makes clear what he/she wishes to write about. This means that the statement of the problem often cannot be written in just 5 lines; it should be a systematic and precise description of the problems and issues that are generated by the topic.
The report should contain delimitations stating what will and what will not be discussed, given the usual associations with the topic.
It may be necessary to include the more important working definitions on which the report is built, that is the report’s terminology, concepts and abbreviations. Only definitions and related items that are decisive for the delimitation and understanding of the topic should be included in the introduction. All other definitions etc. should be placed in the relevant section in the report.
Sections in the text
Each report must contain a sufficient description and analysis of the topic, as this forms the basis for the evaluation of your work. It is essential that there is a logical connection between the statement of the problem and the conclusion, as well as a consistent thread running through the entire report. The report is not complete without a concluding section that satisfies two objectives. First, the concluding section must act as a summary of the report’s content. Second, the concluding section must provide a clear answer to the formulated statement of the problem in the introduction. Please, avoid ending the report with views that have not been substantiated and concluded in earlier sections. The concluding section must be written so that the introductory and concluding sections can be read as a whole.
The content ought to be presented in a pedagogical way. The use of language in the report must be readable and easily understandable, and the section titles should be written so that they cover the content of their respective sections.
For the majority of the topics, there is no “right” answer. Therefore, it is important and necessary that the student exercises independence in the treatment of his/her material, for example in the form of critical and constructive points of view.
References to sources used directly in the text
Direct reference to source material or use of figures, tables, etc. as they appear in the source material must be clearly indicated as such by using exact source notation.
Citations are permitted to a limited extent. These must be indicated by quotation marks and written in single space. The source shall also be clearly indicated.
Viewpoints of others, such as those resulting from interviews, must be clearly stated as such. It is especially important if the author cannot evaluate the viewpoints in question.
References to the sources used are especially important in that the committee does not have the possibility of investigating the correctness of and independence in what is written, if the source is missing.
Direct use of other’s material (plagiarism) or references, which are not accompanied by an indicated source, can lead to a rejection of a student’s report, and this would mean that the report is voided. The committee can also reject a report that lacks in content, again invalidating the report.
