Warning: Don't count on an Oxford comma to fix bad writing. | LinkedIn

I'm a supporter of the serial comma, especially for voice over, but there's a good point here. Weak sentence construction can't be fixed by simply adding a comma.

  • If employees complete their work on time, and if they do a quality job, then location shouldn’t matter.
  • There is a big difference between “going to work” and “getting to work.” Of the two, only “getting to work” creates value. Managers should focus on improving the quality of the work and the efficiency of completion, rather than juggling the logistics of employee location.

A customer voices an objection, software displays an error message, or an employee asks a manager for help. Next, ask learners which action or response they would choose. Now you have a one-question decision-making scenario rather than just an abstract comprehension question. You can do this with any tool, and it creates a more interesting practice or assessment to engage learners.
