    Your success on the job will not depend on your good looks, or on your mathemat¬ ical abilities, or even on your ability to sense and exploit a social or economic trend. It will depend on your ability to obtain information, understand it, and transmit it understandably to other people. This means you will spend a depressing amount of time sitting in front of a com¬ puter terminal, or a report, or a book, trying to soak up information from writers who are probably dull, vague, and confusing. You will then spend even more time in front of another computer, or a colleague, or a committee, trying to explain what you’ve learned without being equally dull, vague, and confusing. Such “data processing,” so to speak, is what workplace writing is all about. You need to know what other people know, and they need to know what you know. It’s the same whether you’re a sales manager or a shop steward, a civil servant or a self- employed entrepreneur.
