I will join an American company as a purchasing manager. it's my first job in American company, before that, I had worked for korean company for 8 years. I wrote business reports in Korean at the Korean Company, generally used with PPT. The most reports are about the negotication with supplier and plant audit.

If somebody worked in American company, Would you like to give me a hand that how to write a business report to boss?

1) What kinds of file used in report? Powerpoint or word?

2) What's style was used in ? (I mean like letter or presentation )

3) and if there are others necessary, pls tell me, I will appreciate you with your help!

Best regards

Hi Cso,

This will be different from one company to the next and even from one boss to the next. I think the best thing you can do is simply ask. "What information do you want to see in the reports I prepare for you, and how often do you want to see them? Is there specific a format you'd like me to use?" I would ask if there are some older reports that he thoughs were well done that you could refer to and match that style as closely as possible.

hi i am vijayabaskar.. am newly joined to company last week.. my boss is in client side.. so i need to sent my report to boss like (minute of moment).. now am developing the project.. am in coding section.. so how can i give the report for this kind of situation..
I think the advice I gave above still applies. Simply ASK your boss what format works best for him/her, or for a sample report that he/she thought worked well and copy that format for your information.
