Assignment 2: Block Business Letter

Due Week 4 and worth 150 points

Steps to Complete Assignment Two: 

1) Consider a professional scenario you have addressed in previous professional settings or are currently dealing with at work or choose one of the professional scenarios provided in Blackboard under the Week 4 tab. 

2) Write a Block Business Letter from the perspective of company management. It must provide bad news to the recipient and follow the guidelines outlined in Chapter 7: Delivering Bad-News Messages in BCOM7 (pages 110-128).

3) In addition to your block email you will use the insert comment box function in Word to add at least 5 comments to your letter that explains why you made the choices you did in your email. For example, you might have a comment box that briefly (1-3 sentences) explains why you chose to use a friendly greeting to an employee who had a broken a rule. If you still have questions about the reflection, do not worry! I will give more examples and provide a sample before this project is due! 

* The message should take the block business letter form from the posted example; however, you will submit your assignment to the online course shell.

    3. Single       space paragraphs and double space between paragraphs.
