Within your 9-1 submission, you should include a table of contents, introduction, and conclusion. An abstract is not required, but you may include it if you wish.

For your 9-1 submission, I am expecting that you will have addressed all of the comments/feedback I have made to you in your graded papers.
Will attach previous work that should cover all of the points listed below.

In other words, what has changed and why? d) Analyze the business operations of your selected company.
