You are having a

Documentation Emergency if:

  • You are about to reach your delivery date for your documentation, and are not happy with the current state of your tech docs…
  • You are asking your engineers to develop the documentation, because you don’t know who else to ask…
  • You are pushing your Tech Writers to develop documentation that is far too technical for them to document well…
  • Your customer has given you a list of documentation requirements, and you really aren’t sure how to get started…
  • You are kicking off your project and don’t have anyone to take responsibility for accomplishing the technical documentation…
  • You are managing an engineering development group, and suddenly realize that virtually nothing has been documented…
You need

  • You have committed to provide your customer with technical documentation, and now need a plan to accomplish it…
  • You have a good team of writers and editors, but an experienced engineering writer could help guide the team…
  • Your technical writers are doing fine with creating user manuals, but we also need some complex design documents…
  • You would like to develop an internal documentation process so we can repeat our documentation success across projects…
  • You have developed a list of documentation requirements for your project, and want to be sure that we develop what we promised…
