ABSTRACT
In any discussion on the failure of communication, the writer usually bears the burden of criticism. But when writers have an opportunity to discuss problems of communications among themselves, one hears of uncoordinated material handed to them, unrealistic deadlines, and poor supervising personnel. Barriers to effective technical communication apply to preparation, language, time and distance, and the human element. Many professional communicators feel that there should be more company indoctrination of new writers and constant retraining of older writers. The human element is still most important in communications. A professional writer will be better trained if he acquires some knowledge of the psychology of communication and of motivation, and if he works for a large corporation he is in an essential way integrated into the scheme of things.
