Abstract: One of the guiding assumptions of the IS2002 Model Curriculum is that all Information Systems professionals "must have good interpersonal communication and team skills;" namely writing skills. In this paper, the author addresses one way of giving information systems students practice with writing skills. The Non-Technology Report is a writing/research paper that helps the student develop both their writing skills as well as critical thinking skills in finding and evaluating information.

Keywords: writing skills, research skills, managerial/organizational issues, grading
