Is the Quality of Writing in UK business as Bad as we Think?
Anecdotal evidence has led me to believe that UK business leaders despair at the quality of writing in their organisations. I am finding out the truth.
Over the next few weeks I am conducting a survey to test my theory that British business leaders think the quality of writing is falling. I also aim to find out what they are doing about it, if anything, and why they think they have this problem. As a result I will be able to write a report (very readable of course) with my friend and colleague Terry Sheppey. We will publish our findings in September and recommend realistic actions that help organisations to aim the fire hydrant at the base of the fire. Terry and I know from our day to day work that report writing courses are often arranged in the hope that they will help - and they do, a little. But there are many other approaches that may be far more practical and focused. Please complete the survey - and forward it to suitable colleagues - to help us to get to the truth.
