Memo is the abbreviation of 'memorandum', meaning a message. The memo in the modern context is generally an instruction, or information for the recipient. A memo is also a formal method of providing information in an organization. This is the original 'in writing' form of management, giving the writer proof of acting in a matter, or providing information to another party.
Examples of Memo:
I sent the accounts department a memo about this sort of spending by sales staff last week.|
I received a memo from the supervisor informing me that the new staffing arrangements were working out.
Did you receive my memo about this client?
