Business is usually practiced as a Social Science. However, people within the Business world have their own expectations when they read. These expectations include:

  • Saving the reader's time. Business people prefer short analysis because they value their own time.
  • Showing the reader that the issue is timely and relevant. It is important to remind the reader, often, how the topic is relevant and how it will help the reader right away.
