There are numerous different formats and styles of writing, from an informal letter or e-mail, to a formal government report. Each has its own purpose – to communicate to the intended audience. A good report could be defined as an effective one, that is, one that produces its intended results. If the author relates directly to the objectives by writing a well-structured document in clear language, it is more likely to gain attention and be effective. An effective report gives the writer, and the organization, a professional image, makes a good impression, and persuades others to take the work seriously.
