I can segregate write-ups (emails, technical documents) as one of the below; with my experience :)
- A long writeup which can help relieve ennui or might cause headaches; you scan for relevant and useful data but you find none.
- One that is scattered with too many morphemes the way Anil writes(for most of us thats giving our dictionary extra work); which can lead to a confabulation later. Anil, this is a compliment :)
- Firm and point blank, assertive ones which can be mistaken for aggression.
- Write ups which are not mindful of the language flow, continuation and grammar. It still could pass the intended message or cause chaos.
Another trick I have learnt is to not give the other party a choice of YES/NO but to be assertive and ask for next set of information. Its not "Can I please use the infrastructure?" but "I plan to start using the infrastructure; please share the relevant details."
So yeah, lot of things in BIG GOOD(pun intended) corporate world :) I am learning! I am learning :)
PS : I just noticed that its quite a short post for communication.
