Business writing is any piece of writing produced in a business context. Business writing includes items such as memos, business plans, internal reports and documents produced for a client.
Documents produced in the course of business writing may be completely original or developed from a template. Since many large companies repeatedly produce similar documents, templates are used for consistency and to save time. In unique situations, however, a new or original document may need to be written. In either situation, the company may require that the document meet certain style, grammar and form guidelines.
As of 2015, business writing has become increasingly important within in the business world. Many colleges and universities have dedicated entire courses to teaching students how to properly write for business.
