みなさん、

Hello everyone. Welcome to E-mail Picks. I'm working on this big project to make a

0:00:09.780,0:00:14.429
product that many of our corporate
clients have been asking for. And I can't

0:00:14.429,0:00:19.080
tell you what it is, but I have been
working with many other departments that

0:00:19.080,0:00:23.730
are involved in this since about two
months ago. And although we are making

0:00:23.730,0:00:29.490
progress at our last meeting, we had
to run out. We all have to rush out of

0:00:29.490,0:00:33.719
our meeting room because our time was up, and we didn't really clarify our next

0:00:33.719,0:00:39.149
step. So today, I'd like to write to
everyone in the project to check whose

0:00:39.149,0:00:45.270
courts the ball is in right now. That way,
we will be able to set expectations on

0:00:45.270,0:00:51.989
what we will discuss in our next meeting.
So he goes. Hi everyone, Can I just

0:00:51.989,0:00:56.129
confirm our next step in this project? So
judging from where our discussion was

0:00:56.129,0:00:59.850
headed towards, before our next meeting,
Tsujino-san will put together a

0:00:59.850,0:01:03.870
rough overview of the whole scope of the
project and I will figure out the

0:01:03.870,0:01:07.350
process the Phillipines office will need
to go through and hand it over to Tsujino-san.

0:01:07.350,0:01:10.380
Does that sound right for
everyone? Please let me know.

0:01:10.380,0:01:16.530
Kyota. OK, so it's a very simple e-mail. I
started with communicating the intent of

0:01:16.530,0:01:21.960
this e-mail. In the second paragraph, I
indirectly pointed out that we didn't

0:01:21.960,0:01:26.939
reach a conclusion during the meeting
and that I am guessing the next step by

0:01:26.939,0:01:32.640
writing "so judging from where our
discussion was headed towards." And then I

0:01:32.640,0:01:37.200
wrote "Does that sound right for everyone
?" And I added "everyone" to give the

0:01:37.200,0:01:41.579
impression that I actually want to hear
back from everyone, not just one person. I

0:01:41.579,0:01:46.860
don't want a dispute about whose court
the ball was in later. So there you go.

0:01:46.860,0:01:52.950
An e-mail to ask for clarification on whose
court the ball is in. I hope that helps to

0:01:52.950,0:01:59.040
give you an idea of how to clarify the
next steps. OK, so thank you for

0:01:59.040,0:02:02.149
watching. I'll see you next week.
