Business Communication on the Edge of Technologybegins with the theory of written and oral communication, and then directs students to analyze business situations and to plan, organize, write, and revise letters, memos, emails, and written and oral reports, applying the principles of ethical and effective communication. Students also create and revise industry standard reports such as white papers using word processing software and presentation-graphics software to create and deliver professional-level oral reports. Messages are broken into their component parts for a critical analysis of organization and content, style, tone, grammar, format, and appearance. Specific topics and assignments include: direct request and direct reply; negative (bad news); persuasive messages; employment-related documents (e.g., a resume, cover letter and e-portfolio); an analytical report which analyzes a problem or question, compares and contrasts alternative solutions, includes properly inserted visuals, page numbers and an associated table of contents, citations and a works cited page; includes documented sources, an executive summary, and provides conclusions and recommendations; and an oral presentation, using presentation software and/or audio-video multimedia, to persuade an audience. Companion Website includes PowerPoint presentations of each chapter, automated True/False and Multiple Choice quizzes for each chapter; Resources that include sample writing and PowerPoint presentations with detailed notes that assist students with content, format, and software functions.
