We’ve heard that in techcomm the ideal workflow is one where managers, developers, writers, and consumers work together to create 'perfect' content to solve business problems. It's tricky to identify all the pieces and make it work. See it live and participate during this session!
This session has you, the audience, guide the plan for product documentation (what goes into it, how it is organized), and then you continue to participate as the presenter works feverishly to ensure your ideas are captured, content is created and approved, and it is published to multiple outputs. See the scramble, and the solutions, to getting “just-in-time” content out the door.
Participate and be a moving part of a documentation project that comes together to create content in a shared workspace, with collaboration between teams, and quality finished materials delivered the way the audience wants them. On time, on budget, and on any device!
