The following is the basic scenario, with which you’re familiar.

Phoenix Advertising, with its main headquarters in Charlotte,

North Carolina, serves clients that include banks, insurance

companies, and retail chains. You’re vice president of human

resources management at Phoenix and report directly to

Gregory S. Forest, the company president. Mr. Forest advises

you that in the last month, four clients have complained

about the advertising work produced by the Roanoke, Virginia

branch of the agency. He reminds you that the clients served

from the Roanoke branch are vital to the overall success of

Phoenix Advertising.

Mr. Forest also explains the little he’s been able to learn

about the situation at the branch: In the last three months,

two of the top management people—an art director and an

account executive—have left the agency. Three of the graphic

designers and four of the copywriters are threatening to quit

because they feel their creative efforts are being rejected or

revised without consultation. They want to be part of a collaborative

team, not to simply produce work that the art directors

and account executives can arbitrarily alter.

In an attempt to increase revenues, the branch is accepting

new clients without evaluating the effects of the new accounts

on the current project workload. As a result, without notice or

compensation for the additional hours, all salaried employees

are required to work long hours several days each week.

Employee morale and productivity are declining day by day.

Your investigative goals are to

• Identify and describe specifically the causes

(root issues underlying) each problem

• Show the impact of each problem on the business

and on employee morale

• Provide specific recommendations for resolving the problems

to restore the Roanoke branch to full productivity


Part A: Topic Outline

Prepare a topic outline (no sentences) using the four Roman

numeral points shown below. Organize all of your prewriting and

scenario information according to those four points. Subdivide

as needed. Your outline must show depth of detail, as well as

correct format. Remember, you’re preparing this outline after

you’ve finished your investigation of the site in order to organize

your thoughts for your report.

Your first Roman numeral point requires no subdivision; it

merely states the purpose of the field investigation and gives

the location. For the other points, add appropriate subdivisions

and a significant number of details beyond the scenario based

on your brainstorming. Remember that if you subdivide a point,

you must have at least two divisions. For example, if you subdivide

to level 1, you must have at least a 2 as well. You can’t

subdivide something by one. The following partial outline

will guide you, but don’t be limited by the capital letters or

numbers. Subdivide each level more or less as necessary to

incorporate all your ideas.

Revise your outline for clarity and completeness. Make sure

your points follow each other in logical order and address the

four Roman numeral points in the example. Make sure the

topics within the subdivisions (A, B, C or 1, 2, 3) are of equal

importance. Use parallel grammatical structure for each point.

Subdivide a point only if you can provide at least two subdivisions.

Otherwise, don’t break down the point further.

• For Point I, did you state the purpose and branch

location without subdivision?

• For Point II, did you list a variety of specific investigative

methods-including with whom, where, when?

• In Point III, did you specify causes for each problem

and show the impact of the problem (effect) on morale

and productivity?

• In Point IV did you provide clear solutions that address

each cause in the same order as you listed in III?

Part B: Informal Field-Investigation Report

Begin a new page in the same Word document. Follow your

outline as you draft your informal report using the basic memo

format. Use the ABC method for developing paragraphs and the

headings shown in the sample field-investigation report in this

study unit. Your purpose is to inform the Phoenix executive

team about your investigation and recommend solutions for

the problems at Roanoke. After providing your purpose statement

and location of the branch, use the following along with

your outline to write your report.

1. For the Description of Investigation section, describe in

complete sentences and paragraphs the ways you investigated

the problems to find the causes of each problem

and their impact on business/morale. This section must

describe a variety of objective, specific methods used, such

as interviewing employees and management, survey,

attendance records, observation of office, budget review.

Use different methods to verify facts and causes—don’t

use just an employee’s word or feeling.

2. In the Results section, write a numbered list of findings

using complete sentences in which you fully identify the

source of the causes underlying each problem and show

the impact of each cause on employee morale/business.

Provide a clear analysis of each problem in the scenario—

identify the causes underlying each and describe the

impact on the company. Don’t merely summarize the

scenario. By showing the underlying issues connected

to specific impact/results, you establish a basis for your

recommendations and show you’re addressing the root

of the problems. You’ll probably need more than one

sentence for several of your findings.

3. For your Conclusions section, clearly summarize the

primary causes for the problems and their impact on

business/morale. Use complete sentences and one or

two paragraphs.

4. For the Recommendations section, list detailed solutions

connected to the root cause of each problem, which you

identified in the Results section. Define specific procedures

or processes that Phoenix must undertake to boost morale

and profitability. List each recommendation in the same

order as the causes you defined in Results. You may use

imperative or declarative sentences.


Carefully revise your work according to the exam instructions

and the evaluation criteria for this exam. Revise for clarity,

content, and coherence. Edit grammar, spelling, and punctuation


Read through your work backwards, first word by word, then

sentence by sentence, and then paragraph by paragraph.

Word by word.

In this way you can locate spelling errors. Be

alert—you may see the word

here in your essay, a correctly

spelled word. But also check the words on either side. Did

you mean

here in terms of location or did you mean the

sense of hearing?

Sentence by sentence.

By looking at each group of words

separately from the context, you can more easily locate run-ons

or fragments. You also need to compare the length and structure

of each sentence for variety. Also check the connections

between sentences-have you provided your reader coherence?

Paragraph by paragraph.

Locate the controlling idea of

each paragraph and compare with your primary focus for the

letter. Does the paragraph help to develop that focus in some

specific way? Then match controlling ideas of each paragraph

to the one before it and the one after it. Do they follow in

logical order?
