One of the most common forms of communication in the world of work is the Memorandum (aka Memo). The memo is a direct, issue-oriented, problem-solving tool to convey information and analysis. You will receive and write many memos in your careers from start to finish.
your audience is a CEO, or “Senior Management.”
There are five (6) elements that need to be covered in your memo:
(1) define current strategy;
(2) delineate competitive advantage;
(3) perform SWOT analysis;
(4) define strategic issues and challenges;
(5) present alternative choices for action;
(6) make a recommendation for one particular decision and why (the rationale) you have chosen it.
NOTE: Standard memos are divided into segments to organize the
information and to help achieve the writer’s purpose.
