During his tenure, President Clinton issued approximately 40 executive orders related to the environment and natural resources, and made extensive use of executive orders to achieve his environmental policy and political objectives. Prior Presidents used executive orders, proclamations, or other administrative means to further environmental goals (the most notable recent example being President Nixon's creation of the Environmental Protection Agency), but few reached the level achieved during the Clinton Administration.
President Clinton repealed all of these crosscutting executive orders. In some cases, he replaced them with weaker executive orders that purported to address the same goals. For example, his regulatory review executive order (Executive Order 12866, 1993) weakened the cost-benefit analysis that agencies are required to prepare for review by the Office of Management and Budget. President Clinton signed his initial federalism executive order (Executive Order 13083, 1998) in Birmingham, England, but it created such an outcry that he eventually suspended it and replaced it (Executive Order 13132, 1999).

Nevertheless, with so many changing factors in the world, such as new technologies and greater global competition in the industry, what long-term strategies should John Deere leverage to stay ahead? It is important for the company to dedicate resources to determine what ground breaking evolutions within the industry will keep them most competitive. As underdeveloped countries continue to improve their quality of life, there will be a growing demand to cater to emerging economies as their agricultural industry becomes more industrialized and automated. A major focus of John Deere’s future strategies to expand its global footprint should include building manufacturing centers, expanding brand recognition, and developing human capital.
You may submit an executive summary as part of an assignment, and your instructor will likely read the summary and the paper or report. It’s helpful, however, to keep in mind that executive summaries should inform and influence people who will only be reading the executive summary. Most of the time, you will be summarizing a paper or report that you wrote, but there may be times when you will write an executive summary of another author’s report or article. Often your instructor will specify the length of your executive summary, but 10% of the document that you are summarizing is a good rule of thumb. For example, a ten-page paper or report would require a one-page executive summary.
Who will read your executive summary? Sometimes your executive summary may have an “intended” audience: your professor might require you to write it for a CEO, department head, or supervisor, for example. On other assignments, your audience won’t have a specific identity, but always keep in mind that the reader of an executive summary needs to know all of the important information in the main document without reading the actual document. Even if you know that your instructor will be reading everything that you submit, write the executive summary as a “stand alone” document.
Kean and Lee Hamilton (co-chairpersons of the 9/11 Commission) in their book, Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission remarked about their need for an executive summary and its wordiness:
Yet, in the previous Administration, a baser motive seemed to prevail in the use of executive power. Former President Bill Clinton proudly publicized his use of executive decrees in situations where he failed to achieve a legislative objective. Moreover, he repeatedly flaunted his executive order power to curry favor with narrow or partisan special interests. If this were not enough, Clinton's top White House political advisers made public statements about his use of executive decrees that were designed to incite a partisan response, saying, for example, that the power was "cool" and promising that he would wield that power to the very end of his term.

Monsanto Company-Before you submit the final version of your Strategic Management Plan, the last piece you need to create is an Executive Summary. This should be the first page in the final version of your plan. It’s meant to be something that an executive could quickly read in order to get a basic understanding of the overall strategic management plan. Due to its purpose, the executive summary should be a thorough and concise summary clearly depicting the content of the plan. Give an overview of the goal you’re trying to accomplish, any major findings in your research, the reasoning behind the goal, and any major obstacles you foresee. It should be treated as a document ready to be turned into an executive director, board of advisors, investor, etc. Therefore, format and style (presentation) is very important.
From the founding of this nation, American Presidents have developed and used various types of presidential or executive "directives." The best known directives are executive orders and presidential proclamations, but many other documents have a similar function and effect. Reduced to their common core, presidential directives simply are written, rather than oral, instructions or declarations issued by the President. Because we would not expect or want the President to limit himself solely to oral instructions and declarations, it is not surprising that every President has used written directives to run the executive branch of government.
