Technical communication is about clarity. Good technical writing is unambiguous–in its objectives, in its organization, and in its execution.
I recently finished a technical writing program courtesy of California State University, Dominguez Hills. Much of the ground covered about structure, coherence, and methods of development was already very familiar to me. But it was helpful to analyze good writing in terms of its ability to instruct. I feel I am a stronger writer for having examined this approach to written communication.
