Exceptional Technical Writing 

This workshop is customized to meet the needs of your team.

Workshop Details

Workshop Description

How does your team ensure that its technical reports are concise, readable, and usable?  

Technical reports must be clear and often must be written for multiple readers with a variety of  technical expertise and knowledge. 

Too often, however, technical reports are a mishmash of  information that aren’t adequate for their intended reader(s). 

That, coupled with the fact that  many writers don’t write the sections of the report to convey the appropriate information,  results in reports that are wordy, hard to read, and downright confusing.

Workshop Aims

Participants will learn strategies to:

  • Analyze and target their readers
  • Use language that’s concise and precise
  • Write for technical and non-technical readers
  • Use readability strategies to write technical documents that are effective
  • Ensure that a document is logical
  • Write for today’s readers

Develop and Implement Effective Writing and Organizational Strategies for Technical Documents

Participants will learn strategies from our PROS Roadmap™ (purpose, reader, outcome, strategy) framework to plan and write technical documents. They will also learn strategies to create an achievable outcome; identify and analyze their target readers’ needs; and write targeted, concise documents. 

Enhance Clarity and Precision in Technical Communication

Participants will learn strategies to refine their language so that they can write with precision and clarity, including choosing the right words, constructing sentences that convey complex ideas simply, and organizing paragraphs to enhance understanding and retention. 

Improve Flow and Readability

Participants will learn strategies that improve clarity, logic, and overall readability, including identifying inconsistencies and ensuring that the document adheres to professional standards.

Frequently asked questions

What’s the format of the onsite and virtual workshops?
Our workshops are engaging, highly interactive, and completely customized! We use micro-learning techniques, in-class exercises, and collaborative breakout sessions to ensure a robust learning experience.
The onsite workshops run from two to five days, depending on the level of complexity of the documents your team writes and how much practice they need. The virtual sessions are typically 10 hours offered in two-hour segments; however, that can vary, depending on team size, team writing skill, and type of workshop.
We customize the course to focus on the types of documents your team writes and the skills they need to improve. Since all of our courses are based on readability studies, we provide your team with the latest tools and techniques to help them plan, write, and revise more effectively and efficiently.
The workshop provides multiple opportunities for participants to apply the concepts to their own writing. Practice sessions range from two to five per day in an onsite workshop and one per two-hour virtual session, depending on the workshop chosen and type of documents discussed.
We provide coaching services; we also help clients develop templates, style guides, and other types of reference documents. And we offer a communication audit, which can help you pinpoint your team’s real writing and review issues.
