PASS analysis
Using PASS analysis helps a business writer to
develop a high-level map for a written communication. Select a
topic, and list the topic, the audience, one possible purpose for a
document, and the types of information (not sources) needed to
achieve that purpose. Because the topics are broad, select some
aspect of the chosen topic. Then, consider the type of written
communication (“staging”) that might suit your topic – letter,
email, memo, instructions, or report.
