Suppose you are part of the following scenario:
 ·         You are a public relations manager who must present information regarding changes in retail store operations to three sets of stakeholders of a retail clothing chain. The stakeholders are store managers, employees, retail customers, and the public. You must explain adjustments that allow employees to come to work on fewer days a week in an effort to combat rising gas prices and save money on store operations.
 ·         Stores close on Sundays. On Monday through Saturday, stores open an hour later and close an hour earlier. Full-time employees, including managers, work four 10-hour days a week. Part-time employees consolidate their hours in 1-, 2-, or 3-day workweeks, depending on how many hours they are scheduled to work. No stores are closing, and no new stores are opening.
 ·         While constructing your messages, determine the characteristics of your audience and consider the appropriate communication type and style for each audience.
Complete Part I: Business Writing Steps. Outline the steps you must take in drafting the three business communications. The outline may take the form of a list, a flowchart, or a web diagram.
