On our last episode we discussed the benefits and importance of writing postmortems. So on today’s episode we discuss the benefits of writing in business in general. Writing things down has become crucial in modern business. The rise of digital media has made the use of text the most important mode of communication.

Today we discuss why this return to written communication is important and why putting your company’s thoughts and ideas to paper is a good idea.

Here are today’s points:

  • The difference between talking and writing.
  • The benefits of writing down information.
  • Lessons startups can take from Amazon.
  • How writing has changed modern business.
  • Writing as a tool in business.
  • The role interpretation has in a verbal conversation.
  • How writing can help a team  reach alignment.
  • The benefits of a clarification or summery email after a meeting.
