Nothing is important. Grammar, spelling, outlining, all that stuff--not important! Just check out the holy

You need this for career-planning purposes? Haven't you heard? Planning is not important either.

Is good grammar important for effective technical communications?  About
six months ago, I read a book on procedures writing that said "Numerous
studies have concluded that there is no correlation at all between
effective technical communications and grammar".

I seek responses for career planning purposes.

three consultants out of the Battelle Laboratory (Columbus, Oh).
