Chapter 14 reading notes

Posted on: April 20, 2010

Chapter 14 discussed the correct way to write, e-mails, memos and proposals.

Email is a good way to communicate because it increases distribution to employees, flattens the corporate hierarchy, and speeds up the decision-making process. It should be noted that email should not be replaced for all one on one communications. It is basically just an informal memo.

Memo’s are also a beneficial way to communicate. Many firms are required to write memos when there are staff meetings or important telephone conversations so that there is a paper trail of what happened. That way if something were to happen they have documentation.

Proposals are a way for a firm to get new business by offering services to an organization. This usually begins with a RFP, which is a request for proposal.  Proposals are a good management technique to consider new programs and policies.
