    Writing Business Documents

    Hi there

    Anyone interested in learning how to effectively write business documents such as reports, proposals, agendas, reports, minutes and much more?

    Let me know. I know about a online part-time course.

    Thanks

    0. integrated 0.management 0. options
    1. heuristic 1. organizational 1. flexibility
    2. systematized 2. monitored 2. capability
    3. parallel 3. reciprocal 3. mobility
    4. functional 4. digital 4. programming
    5. responsive 5. logistical 5. scenarios
    6. optional 6. transitional 6. time-phase
    7. synchronized 7. incremental 7. projection
    8. compatible 8. third-generation 8. hardware
    9. futuristic 9. policy 9. contingency

    The procedure is simple. Think of any three-digit number, and then select the corresponding buzzword from each column.

    For instance, number 257 produces "systematized logistical projection," a phrase that can be dropped into virtually any report with a sincere ring of decisive, knowledgeable authority. No one will have the remotest idea of what you're talking about, but the important thing is that THEY ARE NOT ABOUT TO ADMIT IT!

    MS may have its critics, but MS Word does a fair job when it comes to making you look reasonably fluent. For example, it will tell you when to tack an n onto a, such as in the following example:

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
