BLUF: Efficient communication techniques advice
I agree that as quoted below from a recent Forbes article
"Clear and transparent communication are not simple skills that can be adopted and then dropped at the first sign of trouble, but rather must be practiced in thought, word, and deed. Without a culture of transparency, organizations quickly come unglued and little bumps—like an angry client or misinformed employee—turn into mountains. But with busy schedules, seemingly endless task-lists and diverse clients and personnel, creating a smooth flow of communication can be a challenge."
I need to improve my communication and especially writing skills and I am looking for advice; the article recommends to start with the context however the question at hand I have is: if you first explain the context, motivation and then goals, when it is in written communication, you end up with long emails which is usually very understandably only skimmed by the reader; if you go short, it can be misunderstood due to lack of context; how do you deal with that – do you have some good and working advice from your experience?
The only technique I know that addresses it is the BLUF but I am keen on adopting further working advice.
Thank you very much in advance and regards,
