In this post, I’ll be reviewing Section 2, General Principles, of The Executive Summary.
Note to myself and my readers: I only post excerpts from articles because doing so helps me remember the important points [spaced repetition]. Readers should download the complete article [links below] and review that.
Please note that the guidelines have an outstanding Executive Summary* from e37 to e71 of the PDF.
