Businesses use technical writing extensively to communicate both within and outside the organization. And so, it is essential for an individual aspiring to be an executive to master the art of communication. This accessible and compact book on Advanced Technical Communication discusses how students can learn and master not only the basic skills of communication but also complex skills such as soft skills and skills required for preparing technical documents.
The book begins with a discussion on the concept of technical communication and then it goes on to describe the differences between technical writing and general writing, and layout and format of business letters and résumé. What is more, it elaborates on technical documents such as technical proposals, reports, and specialized documents like theses, research papers and dissertations, differentiating them adequately. Finally, the text covers many of the soft skills required today, for example, presentation skills, interpersonal skills, and group discussion (GD) skills.
