Clear commissions, or briefs, are your chance to demonstrate leadership, by giving writers direction.
Taking the time to commission writers tells them you are serious about plain English, and that you expect them to write the best possible document for your readers. Over time, you’ll see writers develop more skill and confidence because they know what is expected of them.
This speed learning session will show you how to use your knowledge and expertise to commission effectively.
- You’ll review a commissioning model built on the principles of plain English.
- You’ll consider what you need to add or change to make the model work for you and the writers you commission.
- You’ll think about how much time you can save when you no longer have to rewrite documents.
- You’ll see how a commission helps with feedback, peer review, and quality assurance.
