Writing a Business Report

Planning is essential to effective business communication, nowhere more so than in report writing. A comprehensive plan for writing a report includes the timeline for creation of the report, needed materials, a list of all contributors and all necessary collateral supplies and materials, such as artwork. Production is the major step in all business communication projects.

In report writing, production can take as little as a day or as long as several months, depending on the scope of the project. It is important to consult the plan periodically during long report-writing projects to ensure that the project is on track for timely completion.

A report is normally reviewed by at least the writer before it is delivered to its final recipients. Good grammar and style are needed for all business communication, so the review should include--at a minimum--a review of spelling and punctuation. If time permits, a more extensive review of content should be performed. If possible, the proofreader should be someone who is seeing the material anew; "fresh eyes" are apt to spot typos or grammatical problems that someone who has been closely involved in creating the report may not catch.

Delivering a report can take several forms: A report may be presented as a slide show and discussion, printed and emailed in whole to recipients or divided into several sections and delivered over several weeks to different recipients.

A shorter version of a long report may be presented, while the full version is provided in print. Delivery methods are dictated by the length of the report, the availability of the writer to present the findings, and the geographic locations of the recipients.
