Objective

To provide participants with the processes that result in successful technical writing. In this full-day session, participants will learn how to develop a process-oriented, formulaic approach to writing; create and use an outline to manage a document; identify and write to the needs of the audience; and make writing simple, clear, and concise. Without solid technical writing skills, it is difficult and time-consuming to write any type of technical document. Well-organized technical documents are a necessary part of doing business for virtually every organization—from IT and engineering to service providers and non-profits, to construction and transportation—in other words, any organization that creates policies, plans, reports, studies, proposals, or similar documents.
