Paperwork – the unofficial “grease in the axles” of the business world. Even as we move further and further into the paperless future, digital paperwork remains as a bastion of processing business processes. Writing is, therefore, a critical skill. The difference that effective writing skills make to every layer of the organisation, cannot be understated. When communications are clear, concise and accurate, with the appropriate amount of detail and nuance, the whole business benefits. Misunderstandings don’t happen, things don’t get overlooked, and operational inefficiencies are discovered and addressed.
The Business and Report Writing Skills course is all about writing effectively and professionally in the business environment. Delegates learn how to craft clear, unambiguous communication in plain language that improves the quality of written documentation, and how to recognise the conventions and features specific to business texts in order to use them as needed.
The course pays specific attention to report writing, which is included to help delegates relate the features of a range of reports to the information needs of a business. The Report Writing modules teach delegates how to identify information sources, compile function-specific business reports, and follow reporting deadlines. Delegates also learn how to plan research and allocate resources to maximise efficiencies and minimise costs while achieving their information objectives.
