Is your publications group always playing catch up with the development team, or worse, your product documentation is an afterthought?
Do you frequently ask yourself: "How am I going to get the user documentation written in time for the product release?"
Well it starts and ends with a good project manager and a proven development process.
Good Documentation Project Management
A documentation project manager will:
Develop and execute a Documentation Plan
Obtain adequate resources
Identify the target audience and their requirements
Define what "high-quality" documentation is and check for it consistently throughout development
Test usability throughout development
Identify and minimize risk factors
Assess project changes and their impact on the schedule and budget
The development process that works well for us is called "Publications-Development Life Cycle". For more information, you can read "Managing Your Documentation Projects," by JoAnn Hackos.
We also have experienced technical writers and project managers who have written/managed user documenation in an Agile environment.
