Reliable, Critical And Steadfast Corporate Writing

By Serena Price

In corporate writing, where we are and who we are with can make a big difference to how sure we feel in expressing our views and so developing our skills. The equality of relationships can also impact on how comfortable we feel about contributing to discussions and debates. Writers can agree to differ, but debate becomes problematic if it is hampered by anyone who is not open to listening to other viewpoints or who does not consider at all that there may be a different approach or perspective.

Some research from one source may contradict with those of another. There is such a vast amount of information out there that, without these skills, it is hard to know what to include in your academic assignments or how to incorporate new information into to the practice. It is easy to feel overwhelmed and you may discover that you make decisions in the particular professional practice or write such assignments based on inappropriate evidence.

Some journalists may have stricter editorial quality control than others and so may offer a higher standard of information but this still needs to be checked out. The internet contains many hundreds of millions of pages of information, including everything from rigorous research to trivia and misinformation.

Furthermore, your ability to be critical will be assessed and this is a substantial component in almost all marking criteria for those studying for a professional eligibility in health and social care. In fact, being critical is probably the key element of all higher education courses. It is important to note that this is crucial in relation to both your academic studies and your professional practice.

You should avoid just citing a name and a date in your work with no further reference to the type of proof you are referring to; otherwise your reader or listener cannot tell if you are using the best available references. It is important to use the right type of substantiation to back up your arguments.

There is a need to be critical of what you read, see and hear, and you therefore need to question what you are told in practice rather than accepting what your mentor tells or shows you. If you stop to think about this, the implications are enormous. If information or advice is not critically appraised or is based on unfounded rumor, and is then passed unchallenged from one professional to another, we will not be demonstrating evidence-based practice.

So, beware of accepting information at face value from your colleagues. If you only refer to lecture notes in your assignment or use them as evidence for your practice it implies that you have not been evaluating decisively or in depth about the subject. However, even then your argument will be stronger when you develop related evidence to back up what you write. Textbooks, especially at corporate level, generally provide a springboard for further study. Some textbooks provide a basic overview of current knowledge on a particular area, especially if you are starting out in a topic. They may provide sound factual information on topics such as anatomy and physiology.

In principle, you should avoid direct reference to articles in your written work or discussions at work unless you use them as a springboard for further inquiry or you are discussing their view or perspective on a topic. There may be many factors that have impacted on the development of your skills of corporate writing including your upbringing and both the content and design of any education or training that you have attended.
