When Passive is Perfect

  1. 1. When Passive is Perfect.
  2. 2. in business writing when you don’t want to name names. So, if I said: ‘The process was poorly understood’ I am not naming anyone. The other version of the passive is where I name the person at the end of the sentence: ‘The process was poorly understood by Jack’. That version is a little softer than actively saying: ‘Jack poorly understood the process’. But most of the time it’s best to be active: ‘Jack poorly understood the process’ because the meaning is immediately clear. Passive is perfect
