The Executive Summary is a summary of all key sections of the feasibility plan and should work as a separate, stand-alone document.

Key points to remember include.

• Describe plans to upgrade product or expand product line.

• Describe additional or ongoing research and development needs.
• Keep the description in lay terms and/or explain technical terms enough to be understood by business-savvy but not necessarily technology-savvy readers.
