Management Skills: Writing for Business

"Surely a few speling mistakes in my business report won't matter too much?"

Well, actually, that depends who's reading it. In the mind of the reader, your writing is a reflection of you. If the reader is a stickler for correct spelling and grammar, those few spelling mistakes might make a big difference.

So, write [right] for your reader.

This module is not an English lesson but it does test peoples perception of what is right and what is not. For example, should I have put an apostrophe in "peoples" in the last sentence? And what would spell-checker think of paragraph three?


This key component in your management skills set is a common-sense look at the world of business writing from a "stickler's" point of view.


Note: There is a close relationship between Writing for Business and
Microsoft Word.
