Standard memos are divided into segments to organize the information and to help achieve thewriter's purpose.
A business memo is a short document used to transmit information within an organization. Memos are characterized by being brief, direct, and easy to navigate.
Memos have a twofold purpose: they bring attention to problems and they solve problems. They accomplish their goals by informing the reader about new information like policy changes, price increases, or by persuading the reader to take an action, such as attend a meeting, or change a current production procedure. Regardless of the specific goal, memos are most effective when they connect the purpose of the writer with the interests and needs of the reader.
