TECHNICAL WRITING 101

Business Management

Introduction

Reports are the lifeblood of decision making and monitoring in business. Ideally, they provide relevant, vetted information that allows a reader to easily understand both context and implications and make an informed decision. However, too often, important information is buried and organisation is muddled. And, writing a report can feel like a time-draining burden.

This one-day program teaches you the optimal planning and writing process to convey technical and complex information effectively. And, you will learn how to write reports more efficiently, saving you time and reducing frustration.
