BIZ101A Business Communications Task Summary

Context

Your ability, as a professional, to use modern communication technologies to support and improve business practices is critical for business success. Equally important is your ability to write well-structured business reports to communicate your ideas and recommendations to a range of stakeholders. This assessment task requires you to demonstrate these abilities in the context of business communication technologies in preparation for your professional practice.

Business Instructions

Now that you have completed a report outline and source analysis in assessment task 2A, use the same topic for Assessment 2B to write a full report.

To complete this assessment task:

  1. describe your chosen organization,
    1. briefly analyse your topic’s digital communication technology,
    1. compare at least two (2) different platforms or applications (apps), their uses, advantages and disadvantages,
    1. identify the factors which will need to be considered for their implementation in an organisation, as well as your recommendations.
  2. Ensure that you use headings and subheadings to clearly communicate your ideas. This gives the reader a pathway to understand your report.
  3. Integrate as a minimum the four (4) sources from your Assessment 2A Source Analysis into your report. For instance, you may decide to use each source for a different section or a combination of sources in a section.
  4. Include additional research as needed to support your line of reasoning.
