ENG 221  Week 1 Discussion Question 1  Post your 100 ­ 150 word response to DQ1 by using this provided thread ­ Due Thursday, 9/30. Based on the Warrier (2008) article, what are the differences between technical writing and other forms of writing with which you might be familiar?  Technical writing has to concise and to the point. There should be no wordiness, whereas most  other forms of writing can be indirect when explaining something. Which is more persuasive: technical or expository writing? Explain your answer.  Well technical writing should be direct and to the point. It should also be written for the regular  person to understand. I would not say that it is persuasive. It is supposed to be a step by step set  of instructions. Now expository writing can be persuasive. When using expository writing the  writer is attempting to give a detailed description of something. It could be a problem that needs  to be addressed and the writer is trying to convince the reader to correct it in a certain fashion. So with that said expository writing would be more persuasive.   Which type of writing have you seen used more often in the corporate environment? I have actually seen both types of writing in the places that I have worked. In one company I was a part of a team that documented work procedures/instructions for ISO compliance. All of the  manufacturing places I have worked had technical manuals. As for expository writing I would  say that the people in sales and management positions would have to write persuasive letters or  memos. Sales personnel have to persuade customer to buy their product. Management may need  to convince upper management to agree to a budget proposal. I have seen that from some of the  directors I have worked for. Discussion Question 2 Why is it important to develop good technical writing skills?  What are some issues that could occur in a corporate environment that lacks strong technical writing skills?  Describe situations that you have witnessed or heard about where poor technical writing skills have harmed an organization. Technical writing skills are very important in the job world today. An employee that  possesses this skill is a great asset to a company. Some issues that may occur in a  corporate environment that lacks strong technical writing skills are confusion of the  employees resulting in sub­par work being done. In a manufacturing environment the  lack of technical writing skills could result in part being made incorrectly. This would  cause excess scrap, lost of profit, loss of time (more money since time is money) and  dissatisfied customers. One situation that I have seen is when engineers design a new  part and do not include good instruction on how to build the part. The employees in  manufacturing either build the part wrong or have to spend their time finding the  engineer so that he or she can explain what it is that they want built.
