Description
Documents that enable users to carry out specific actions for well-defined results are said to be task-oriented. A task-oriented document seeks to describe a performance in enough detail to enable the reader to carry out the task. One such task-oriented document is specifications reports. Specifications enable their users to perform specific tasks as the absent expert would. In specifications ('specs') the author is providing expert guidance that ensures a given standard of performance.

This 2-hour online course emphasizes the planning, writing, revising, and editing skills that are mandatory to achieve the precision, accuracy, and exactness necessary in any well-written specifications document.
