As a result of attending this session, attendees will be able to optimize their process when landed with a document that needs more than they have time to accomplish.
A prime complaint of working in-house can be writers who don’t understand just how long it takes to do a proper job.
Sometimes, however, you just have to put your head down and do what you can in the time you have. In this course, Christa shares a procedure developed through working with and interviewing many senior members of international corporations to quickly identify and solve the major issues to rapidly improve important reports and other documents. How to get maximum results when you only have minimum time.
Electronic copy of course text will be provided free of charge to attendees.
