Class, I approach this class as more of a business operation rather than an academic course. While the memos I provide a longer than most, these are Memorandum of Understanding or Memorandum of Agreement, which can be long. Most organizations will require specific formats for their communication needs. This class will need to use the memos. I use the formats to ensure you include all aspects of the requirements. If you select not to use the template as given, you need to ensure that you address each element distinctly. Remember, I am expecting business communications and not an academic paper. I have been a CIO and CEO in organizations that require prescribed formatted communications.
Each memo does incorporate the assignment guidance and rubric requirements. Here is how memo 1 breaks down.
