Overview: Business Communication: Building Critical Skills provides a unique approach to a hands-on course, devised and created in its previous editions by Kitty Locker, with the assistance of a community college colleague, Stephen Kaczmarek.
The innovative module structure allows instructors to focus on specific skills and provides greater flexibility for short courses and different teaching approaches.
