Advanced Report Writing Workshop

The Problem: Your reports are thoughtful and eloquent, and they take you forever to write. They’re too long, too hard, and too complex. You know this needs to change: But how do you write reports that are leaner, better, and faster?

The Solution: In this workshop, we’ll explore the research on effective communication. We’ll discuss ‘technical writing’ and learn how this style creates a profoundly better user experience. We’ll use metaphors, data, and exercises to dive deep into what makes a report readable and useful. We’ll challenge ourselves to connect with our readers and write a report geared to their needs.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify their MVP: The Most Valuable Part of their reports.

2. Explain the research, art, and science of making that MVP readable, useful, and unique.

3. Apply these ideas to their own reports.

4. Select from an array of tools and tips to write faster, better reports.
