This course focuses on improving business writing. The ability to write clearly and directly is highly prized in organizations. You will learn how to be a better writer and how to review your writing to make it purposeful and effective. The ideas, techniques, and checklists in this course apply to all forms of business writing: memos, reports, brochures, presentations, catalogs and websites. You will learn to recognize key factors for effective writing (clarity, tone, organization, delivery), how to answer the reader's questions: "What's in it for me?" and how to structure, format and write quickly (when appropriate). Other topics include formal and informal outlining techniques, how to revise for wordiness, unnecessary phrases, redundancy and jargon and the appropriate use of email in an organizational setting.
