Writing Skills for the Business Professional
Write clear, concise, and coherent documents
Business writing is mostly about creating documents: reports, proposals, instructions, memos, procedures, policies, documentation, and specifications. If writing these projects is challenging, if you are a business professional, in sales and marketing, an engineer, programmer, computer or IT professional, scientist, or in research and development, then this class is for you.
Participants benefit from a structured writing process to create written business communication (including reports, proposals, instructions, sales and marketing materials, correspondence, email, and other documents) that are readily understood by their audience and attain the intended results.
This class includes a formal assessment that the instructor will complete after each
participant submits a writing sample.
Instructional Strategies Throughout the class, the following training methods are employed:
♦ Lecture for presenting concepts
♦ Question and answer
♦ Exercises, both individual and group
♦ Practical application of concepts
♦ Peer evaluation and assessment
