Elements of the Completed Playbook
The full playbook will be composed of these elements:
- A cover page
- A written Executive Summary that provides key highlights of your playbook
- A strategy map or other playbook summary diagram
- An appendix, your synthesized, integrated compilation of your previous playbook entries
General Format: All sections should be single-spaced. Start with a cover page and begin numbering the pages with the Executive Summary and continue the page numbers through the very end (Appendix included). References should be included after the Appendix and follow APA sixth edition format.
Note: Your paper should have a cover page with a title for the recommended strategy that describes the strategy, like “Maru-C” (“Encircle Caterpillar”), which was a large-scale strategy that Komatsu strove for in the 1980s.
