Assignments are required to be formatted in Times New Roman 12PT font with 1-inch margins and double spacing. This formatting means that there would be about 250 words per page. Submitted papers should be in the range 6-10 *text* pages (page count NOT including cover page, table of contents, executive summary, references and any graphics), which means approximately 1,500-2,500 words of *text* and NOT longer. In addition please note it is *required* that students include each *section* of the template, but the questions and comments under each section can be applied with discretion, except for a few areas—as in The Innovator’s Method five-phased model or in financial metrics for firm performance—where certain key elements are noted as required to be provided as explained

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor
