Report Writing Short Course

Writing reports that accurately gather and interpret all appropriate information before converting it into a logical and easy to understand form is a skill that requires special attention to detail. This means that reports must be prepared so that they can be used to determine future actions by the appropriate parties once these reports have been tabled, analysed, discussed and decisions recorded.
