Report Writing Skills
Successful writers are able to communicate effectively with their readers, be it office colleagues, supervisors, beneficiaries, partners, donors or the media. The quality of written reports has an impact on how programmes and projects are perceived both internally and externally. A report writer’s capacity to identify what is important and to flag issues of concern, while remaining short and concise, is essential to producing an influential report.
Writing skills can be learned. It requires a strategic approach: You need to carefully plan, identify what the objectives of your document are, select an appropriate structure and format for the text, ensure quality control and good time management to deliver the document on time.
