A report is a standard form of business communication. Usually it is generated when a particular person is tasked with gathering information and digesting it into a form that can be readily accessible by other members of a business. Usually, a report simply gathers and organizes information, although it can also make recommendations. the main strengths of the report form are its efficiency. Rather than all members of a project having to look at primary materials themselves, they can save time by reading a report. The main limitation of the report is that it is only as good as the person who writes it. Also, reports can be dull reading; while useful for working members of a project team, reports are often too dry to be of value to customers.
