STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 844 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Business Writing improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 844 standard requirements:

  1. Often individuals who are creative in one mode seem to have creative skills in other areas. How do you rate yourself in terms of creativity in the fields of art, writing, and music?

  2. Examine a document that you have recently written or received. Identify the main point (or claim) and evaluate the effectiveness of the support: Are good types of evidence used?

  3. For your message to come across well, it helps to consider both sides of the relationship: What exactly do you want out of it, and how will the other person likely respond?

  4. Have you ever received a correspondence written in the direct or the indirect style that would have been more effective if written in the other style?

  5. Browse through corporate Web sites to identify different indicators of corporate culture. If you dont know your audience, how can you analyze it?

  6. Are there any ways today in which paper correspondence would be inappropriate, in other words, in which only e-mail is appropriate?

  7. Parenthesis. Avoid using parensuchs because they de-emphasize your text, and if what youre writing isnt important, why include it?

  8. When you send off business documents that you have written, what do you think the recipients--your readers--hope for?

  9. What is your organizations current practice for producing written brochures, reports, and business correspondence?

  10. What kinds of situations can you think of in which letters are still the most acceptable way to correspond?
