In the workplace, it is essential to communicate ideas quickly and completely. We don’t typically have the time to read clever prose or to explore newly-presented ideas in depth, especially if they don’t apply directly to what we are currently working on.
For this question, find an email or short business document (one you can share), and reduce that document to its basic elements (see “Defining The Rhetorical Situation” on page five (5) of our textbook). Then, answer the following questions:
- How could this email/document have relayed its message more efficiently without losing any essential details?
- Do you think this email/document would have been more effective by highlighting only the essential information? Why or why not?
In your post, please attach a copy of the email or document you are working with.
*Please remove any names, business logos, or other identifying information before sharing the document/email.
