CASE STUDY

Writer Enablement

Have you ever had writer’s block? Staring at a blank screen when a blog post is due tomorrow is hard! Writing and editing do not have to be black boxes. This workshop introduces you to the OSP writing toolset, and teaches you how to consistently create authentic, compelling content. Learn how to improve your writing, and help others with theirs.

What: Learn to produce written content consistently to deliver value for your business.

How: We’ll teach you our repeatable, structured approach to writing and editing, using authentic communication principles. 

Who: Teams who need to produce content that connects the value of what you do to your audience. New writers, non-native English speakers and experienced writers will all learn something.

Takeaways: You’ll leave with ready-to-use templates tailored for your business.

Process eclipses creativity

Producing consistent written content is challenging, especially for those with a non-writing background. In addition, the traditional editorial process can be frustrating and inefficient. At OSP, we have created a transparent, systematic way to prepare, write, and edit content. 

  • Do you need to produce written content that helps your business or mission?
  • Do you stare at a blank screen, not knowing how or where to start writing?
  • Do you want to learn to write more consistently, systematically improve your writing, and help others?

You can’t rely on inspiration to hit week in, week out, when you need to produce content on a regular basis. We’ve learned to trust process instead. Our structured, systematic approach to writing and editing gives you clear guidance to create any piece of content with minimum effort.

Your workshop experience

Authentic Communication Framework

First, we introduce you to Open Strategy Partners’ principles and discuss the roles of empathy, clarity, and trust in teams, content, and communication. 

Strategic Communications Framework

We briefly touch on the strategic framework, and explain the components needed to create effective and strategically relevant content. These include the OSP Value Map and Trust Signals, as well as classic marketing elements like target groups and personas, the buyer’s journey, and core narratives. As a group, we’ll work to capture topics relevant to your organization along the way. 

Interview-Based, Accurate, Compelling

Many of us need to create expert-level content about many subjects. And we can’t all be experts in everything. We take you through OSP’s interview-based approach to making content that is technically accurate and interesting to read.

Structured Writing and Editing Process

Editorial-, channel-, and asset-planning form the bridge from the strategic framework to our writing process. Using one or more of your topics in individual or group exercises, we take you from template to brief to draft and through the OSP editing process to final copy, with a deeper dive into narrative structure and logical rigor along the way.
