Type of Organization
 If your organization is part of a larger international organization, you may consider only your country’s division. Avoid considering individual departments or sections of an organization as this will constrain you to deal with functional-level strategy only.
 If your organization is a government department, proceed with an analysis of that division, providing, it is a budgetary center. Dealing with a subdivision will constrain you to deal with functional-level strategy only.
 If your organization is an independent, not-for-profit entity, proceed according to the advice above.
Make sure the conclusion is not just a summary of your recommendations. Emphasize the key recommendations in your conclusion and consider how they might be actioned.
