Critiquing a Persuasive Memo
Based on your reading, key concepts, and the Learning Activity from Unit 1 along with the Evan Thomas video, you will apply what you reviewed to critique a bad business memo. Read the example of the short memo below and respond to the following checklist items:
- Who is the sender?
- Who is the receiver?
- What is the intent?
- How might you clarify this memo?
- Is it persuasive in getting the recipient to act? Why or why not?
You will need to send a confirmation as to what the outside limits are in line with the budget parameters delineated in the meeting last week. Send it on to production afterwards. This is priority so please expedite.
