The Report for Decision Making: Genre and Inquiry.
Rude, Carolyn D.
Journal of Business and Technical Communication, v9 n2 p170-205 Apr 1995
Suggests that the report for decision making shares some common ground with the proposal, the report of scientific experiment, and the persuasive essay, yet these genres differ. Argues that recognizing these differences is necessary for effective inquiry, pedagogy, and decision making. Claims that complex problems for decision making require a rhetorical method of inquiry based in Aristotle's special topics. (RS)
