Why creativity and clarity are so essential.
 

The best project managers and business leaders usually employ clear and creative communication methods because they know they must keep their stakeholders actively engaged. They also want their readers to believe them; therefore, they make sure their content is updated and relevant and the facts they quote are truthful -- never biased or misleading. 

Knowledge equals power! We communicate with others to share knowledge and vital information. Effective communication is empowering and helpful, while incomplete or ineffective communication is frustrating and useless.

If a project document, web site or training program uses a lot of  useless jargon (a.k.a., "alphabet soup") or strays far from  everyday plain English, your audience will get lost on the dark side of the moon. You don't want them to go there!
