What Do Technical Writers Bring to the Table Today?
A few years back we published an article, How Technical Writers Add Value to Your Team.
As most technical writers and documentation managers know, the technical writing environment has changed fairly rapidly since the article was first published. This has partly occurred due to internal changes that include new methods of development, like Agile and its many offspring, and new responsibilities being assigned to technical writers. External factors have also played a part, including advancements in technology, such as increased mobile usage and the growing need for portable information delivery to both external and internal customers.
We think the original article still has merit, but perhaps it should be updated to consider today’s working and development environments.
