Required Outline & Other Information about the Assignments –


 1. Work Hard to Avoid Personal Pronouns – The excessive use of personal pronouns is discouraged in business and analytical writing.  It is recommended that personal pronouns are avoided altogether, if possible.  Please make sure that personal pronouns (e.g., I, we, my, our, etc.) are avoided in paper.  It will take some work, but it can be done easily by rearranging the wording of sentences.


2. Companies Are Not “They,” “Their,” or “Them” – This is a reminder that a company is not a “they,” “their,” or “them.”  A company is very much an “it.”  So, to reference a company, use “it,” the name of the company, or “the company,” or “the organization,” or “the firm,” etc.
