Part 1: Project Report
Develop your data review project report. Use the Data Review Project Report Template, linked in the Resources of this unit. This template is different from the Data Review Project Proposal Template used in Assessment 2. Authoritative sources should be integrated into the Evidence-Based Recommendations and Conclusion sections of the report.
Provide a minimum of three visual data summaries (for example, pie chart, graph, spreadsheet, and process map), two evidence-based recommendations from the literature, and one new insight. Place these additions in your document under the headings: Data Display, Recommendations, and Conclusion.
Add, in an appendix, the balanced scorecard table that you have created in Assessment 2.
Note: The requirements outlined below correspond to the first five grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your project report addresses each point, at a minimum. You may also want to read the Data Review Project Report and Presentation Scoring Guide to better understand how each criterion will be assessed.
- Align a problem statement, performance indicators, and outcome measures with an organizational strategic need.
- What additional information would strengthen the alignment and make it more explicit?
- Summarize the key findings from a review of current and relevant authoritative literature.
- Be concise and substantive. Provide sufficient information in the summary to adequately cover the selected topic.
- Consider adding additional best practice sources to your initial review of the current literature.
- Articulate the value of a project to an organization.
- Consider a strategic systems perspective when contemplating value to the organization.
- Express main points, assertions, and conclusions clearly and effectively.
- Be sure you have evidence to support your conclusions.
- Analyze performance data and trends.
- Present your visual data displays, along with a concise analysis.

- Ensure your data is valid and reliable.
- Provide evidence-based recommendations, a conclusion for problem resolution, and organizational transformation.
- Identify a short list of interventions to solve the problem, supported by current (published within the past 3–5 years) authoritative literature.

- Make your recommendations sufficiently compelling to convince the target audience to implement them.
- Include, more importantly, a clear statement about how the project added value to the organization and aligned with the organization’s strategic direction and goals.
