One metho d I would recommend for speedier progress is to use the already prepared re ports.  If you have a report on process X, you can use it for process Y.  Since the headings will already be in place and the amount of deta il in each section can be studied a new person would figure out what type o f information is expected in such report and in what section.  It is, of course, necessary for the person to have complete understanding of gramm ar.  I wouldn’t expect anybody to write in good English if they can’t speak it in  complete sentences.

Good luck.

Subject:< /b> [DCHAS-L] Technical Writing



In my field, our final product is a written report.  Some empl oyees struggle with report writing and never seem to improve.  It's a frustrating loss of time and effort.  Has anyone had success at improv ing technical writing classes, seminars, or other alternatives?  Thank s for your suggestions.
