  • justify why it is important for management to take action to address the issue/problem raised, having regard to its impacts on performance in the organisation (at multiple levels, if this is appropriate);
  • use research/academic literature to analyze and assess possible strategies for managing the issue/problem,taking into consideration constraints that exist in the organization;
  • recommend policies and actions based on this assessment. Justify your recommendation(s); and
  • be persuasive in your arguments.¬†

There is a clear logic or flow in the structure of these points, and you may like to use this to structure your argument in the essay.
