What is an Executive Summary?
An Executive Summary is a brief description of the contents of a larger report. The Executive Summary is located in the beginning of a report, generally after the table of contents. This summary provides a brief overview of the details of each section of a report or other lengthy document. This enables the reader to review the report details if there is not enough time to read the entire report.
How to write an Executive Summary
An Executive Summary is short in length; it should not be much longer than a page. The descriptions should be short for each element of the report, 1 or two sentences briefly describing each critical section of the report.
