Writing for Multiple Audiences: An Examination of Audience Concerns in a Hospitality Consulting Firm.
Journal of Business Communication, v33 n3 p257-73 Jul 1996
Presents a 30-month case study of how one business writer made decisions concerning audience. Suggests that audience theory does not adequately describe the cognitive and social decisions writers make in real-world professional contexts, with intrinsic internal factors such as writer's creditability, financial rewards, and promotions affecting decisions concerning audience more than the client's specific need for the report.
