Research: Writing on the Job

Question: What contributes to the writing of people in major corporations?

Answer: “Examines writing process of personnel who wrote as part of their jobs in a major corporation. Results indicated that writing, reading, speaking and listening played nearly equal roles in communication.” BT Peterson. 1984. P. 192.

Comment: A no-brainer? Still, it’s an interesting point of view toward success, not only in writing, but in communication generally. RayS.
