- "As the first reader and editor of corporate and government reports, I have learned that editing issues—word choice, passive voice, long sentences—often reveal underlying content problems—fuzzy thinking, vague plans, and simply not knowing who is responsible. As editors, we tend to focus on one level of editing at a time. What we see on the surface can help us help our clients improve how they think, not just how they write."
