This Guide suggests laws of good report writing, but only because in the field of communication, laws should be generally applied but broken if necessary. For example, the second law concerns brevity. If clients have spent thousands of pounds to gain access to expert knowledge, it may be inappropriate to reveal it in five pages. They will feel cheated if they receive so little, even if it represents value for money. A longer report will be politically more expedient.
Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the types and purposes of technical reports
  • Write clear and concise formal reports, equipment manuals and other technical documentation
  • Develop effective communication with technical as well as non-technical staff at all levels – matching your content to your readers’ knowledge.
  • Collect, organize, analyze and evaluate information
  • Appreciate the use of active verbs rather than passive verbs.
  • Edit wordy phrases – using simple words rather than complex ones
  • Keep technical terms to a minimum – avoiding jargon, acronyms and abbreviations
  • Transfer technical information into graphs, flowcharts and tables.
  • Translate technical documents into compelling oral presentations
