  One Response to “Log Review”

  1. 6/27/16 kj
    Here are some draft questions that I came up with to facilitate the review of the logs by other collaborative partners. It is far from the mark but perhaps it is a start.

    Does the writer present project proposals in a well-thought out business format, including Holistic Management Decision-Making rationale?

    Does there appear to be room for improvement in the arena of basic writing skills?

    target audience, message, spelling & grammar, sequential thought development and organization
