Decision making is a requisite part of life. It’s quite essential for the whole progress of life. As we move further we face random issues to take decisions on. Based on these decisions we choose to lead our entire life. In some decisions, there is no turning back once a decision is made but in others you can be lenient enough upon yourself and all of the factors relevant to the decision matter. Agreement as the name reflects is a state of mutual harmony regarding a conflicting issue. Simply putting, it’s accepting a decision.
Agreements can be made to one’s oneself, individuals, groups, institutes or companies. Generally, this term is known for the unanimity promise which two parties make on some issue. To make these agreements official letters are written as legal proof especially in highly customized situations. The agreement made between two business parties or two political parties would fall under the category of highly conventional and thus would be formal in the language. Other than this kind, the agreements made in groups like the promises of loyalty, punctuality is different.
Though the group agreements are also formal but not as between two companies. When an institute hires a faculty it takes an oath and makes agreements with them about different matters like salary, the number of lectures and subjects. Having these matters come to a decisive point, the agreement is made to make sure no one turns their back and break the promise.
Besides the points of agreements written in these letters, the consequences of breaking up are also mentioned. These agreements are written down and letters are printed and sent to the people with whom the promise is being made.
Sometimes a school principal has to make an agreement between him and the student or his parents under some certain circumstances. For instance, if the student is too much irresponsible and a bully, the principal would have to warn him and his parents and make an agreement such as if he continues with his bad behavior he will be expelled from the school. On some unusual occasions, parents make agreements to their kids too. Such as if they abide by the domestic rules they will not be grounded or allowed to go to movies. In such highly informal situations, agreement letters are not mandatory to be provided with. Agreement letters are written in only formal format whatever the level or situation is.
