The Prewriting Process

The Prewriting Process

According to J. Richard Hackman, a noted team research scholar, using a team to complete a complex project may not be the best approach. However, imagine that your organization relies heavily on teams to complete projects. Your boss wants you to develop a well-researched report analyzing Hackman’s comment.

As you prepare to write this report, respond to the items below. Post your response in the discussion board.

1. What are the first steps of the 3×3 writing process–the pre-writing process?

2. What is the purpose of your report? Why are you writing this report? What do you hope to achieve with this report?

3. What is the best channel to send your report? What factors did you consider in making this decision?

4. Who is your primary audience? Do you have a secondary audience?

5. What is the appropriate tone for your report?

6. What techniques will you use to help you achieve a positive tone?

7. How are you going to ensure your report has a “you” view?

8. Give an example (provide lots of examples, define all the terms, provide lots of details) of how you will make your report:

    • Conversational and professional
    • Courteous
    • Bias-free
    • Precise and vigorous

As you respond to your classmates, make sure you use the course concepts that you have studied so far.
