I'm looking for a template or guidelines for how to write a technical report.
The report is IT-related and intended for a project manager to review the work of the investigation of a IT-related issue.
Title: Meaningful but not overly long
Abstract: Summarize the report in one paragraph
Sec. 1, Introduction: Give background on the project. (What led to it?)
At end of intro, explain the format of the rest of the report in a few sentences.
Sec. 2-4??, Main Body of Report: Ideally you would have a separate section for each aspect of the project. (I took a stab at it above in Intro description. Don't feel bound by that.)
Sec. Last#, Conclusion: Here you can wax eloquent with your opinions, which you have hopefully kept out of the rest of the sections. You should end with a summary, which will sound a lot like the abstract but can be longer.
Footnotes, if any.
