For this assessment you are required to write a briefing note in the format described below. The topic of the assessment will be announced in the lecture and posted on Blackboard.
The first two pages, the ‘body’, should engage the topic in the format of a briefing note. The third page is to be used as an appendix to describe in more detail the pros and cons of the option that you recommended in your briefing note. [see Template document on Assessment page of Blackboard]
