Memorandums are short, urgent, informal messages circulated within an organization to meet the internal operational goal. In this sense, memos are fine examples of internal operational communication. Traditionally memos are written in two standard sizes and formats. Generally, the sizes of memo pads are 5" x 1.5" and 8.5" x 11". Most memos are informal memos. Memos written by the subordinates to the senior or executive people tend to be formal.
