Short reports: audience, conclusions and headings

I sometimes borrow good ideas from Dennis Jerz, who blogs about college writing at http://jerz.setonhill.edu/. He recently updated his advice for writing short reports, and it’s worth passing along. It’s always good to remember that technical or business writing is different from most college writing. The workplace reader usually has only a few minutes to grasp your point, so you’d better make it obvious.
