About the Information Mapping ® Method
The Information Mapping ® Method is a research-based, systematic approach to analyzing, organizing and presenting clear and user-focused information. It is widely recognized as an international content standard for creation, management and deployment of mission-critical content.
About Persuasive and Technical Writing
Business communication falls into 2 distinct categories depending on its purpose. There is fact-based information such as that in procedures, work instructions, and policies where the aim is to convey information that people can act on. This is sometimes referred to as Technical Writing. And there is persuasive information when the purpose of the communication is to get a response. As a result, typical documents are emails, reports, feasibility studies. The Information Mapping method works well for both because it focuses on the user’s needs.
“Technical writing involves two key competencies,” indicates Atul Mathur, a professional engineer and technical copywriter in Singapore. “The first is the ability to understand technical language; the second is being able to express that knowledge in a clear, concise, and coherent manner.”
Our courses Mastering Successful Policies and Procedures and Mastering Policies, Procedures and Documentation focus on technical writing and are the perfect introduction for anyone who would like to become a technical writer.
Most people spend at least part of every day writing and reading emails and other communications. The message is often not clear and a lot of time is wasted. Clients who create communication written using the Information Mapping method report savings of up to 50% in reading and writing time. The Mastering Business Communications course focuses on improving writing skills and productivity gains.
