Description

A concise guide for anyone who has the task of writing reports in any business or government organisation.

Much communication involves report writing – either in hard copy or electronic format. However, many educated adults cannot write well enough to successfully transmit their thoughts to others. Their message is often hidden in a mass of unclear, poorly structured material. Every communication has a sender and a receiver, but communication is only effective when there is the same understanding of the message between both parties.

The receiver of your report wants to be able to absorb and assess the information in the shortest possible time. Therefore, as the report writer, you need to convey as much information as necessary, as concisely as possible.

Contents include:

  • Know your target reader.
  • Seven basic principles of clear report writing.
  • Organising and writing effective reports: two types of reports, typical report structure, describing a problem, formulating recommendations.
  • Layout of the business report.
  • Progress report structure.
  • Editing and proofreading of reports.
  • Checking the readability of the document using a little-used MS Word feature.
  • Report writing checklist.

Practical proven methods, easy-to-read and apply concise, step-by step guidelines for how. Another invaluable time-saving resource for the development of training programs and training material.
