Reports play an important part in the life of many professional people: they are a link between writer, colleagues and clients worldwide. Reading and writing reports occupies a considerable proportion of working time, particularly for senior staff. Yet many professionals (including those in engineering and technology) lack confidence in their report-writing skills, and feel that their credibility suffers because their reports are not a fair reflection of their expertise.
This two-day course analyses report preparation from the earliest stages of identifying the reader and the objectives to the effective presentation of the complete document. It is a highly practical course, giving delegates the opportunity to analyse technical writing in terms of style and grammar and to assess their own and their company’s policy for the revision and checking of documents before they are issued. Methods of structuring report material are suggested and practised.
Participants will also learn how to:
Technical Report Writing – The Essentials
o The technical reader
o The decision maker
Bringing technical writing to life
o The right words o The right style
Technical Report Writing – Generating the Report
Delegates attending this two-day course are asked to send a sample in advance of a short report or other technical document they have written. The tutor will review these documents and discuss them with delegates individually at some point during the second day. Many have said that this brief ‘tutorial’ has been particularly useful in allowing them to assess their own work and to discuss how it can be improved in the future.
