Effective technical writing skills are crucial in the workplace. Acquiring and honing these skills helps the reader of the document or presentation to better or more effectively comprehend the given information in a format that is easy to read and understand. By use of clear and concise (short and to the point) declarations in short, informative sentences, tables and lists, the writer displays their own ability to analyze, understand, and problem solve. These are imperative characteristics of a leader and successful communicator. A proven leader and effective communicator always advances and proves a valuable asset, no matter what the field.
