Your CEO will be meeting with the company’s Board of Directors, a group of 5 people who ensure the company is running smoothly.  The meeting is in one week and she cannot wait for your completed analytical business report (see Module 9). She needs a short report immediately so that she can prepare a presentation for the board of directors.


Your task is to write a 1-2 page memo report discussing the reasons why the company is investigating more flexible work practices, the methodology for determining the most appropriate work practice, and the results of your research to date.   Use the survey data provided in Module 9 to construct at least two (2) graphs(effective visuals) in Excel.  Then insert the Excel graphs into your memo under the appropriate heading.

Use standard business memo format – a memo template is provided in this module.
