Normally used with large technical reports Extended, stand-alone abstracts that have both informative and descriptive characteristics. Capture much of the full reports substance in a fraction of the space. A manager can read an executive summary and get 80% of the knowledge that would have been derived from the full report, but in about 1/10th of the time. An executive summary spans several pages. Typically they are 2-5 pages, but can be upwards to 30 or so. 1/25/09 - L9 Abstracts and Summaries Copyright 2009 - Joanne DeGroat, ECE, OSU
