TCUK15 Speaker – Doug Dennis to present on “Promote, Innovate, Repeat: maintaining documentation quality throughout organisational change”

Doug Dennis will be presenting on “Promote, Innovate, Repeat: maintaining documentation quality throughout organisational change”.

Doug Dennis

Many technical writers experience sudden, sometimes unsettling organisational change which affects their work and that of their associated teams. You might find yourself as part of a larger documentation team having to adapt to unfamiliar processes and tools, or placed under the spotlight as the sole technical writer in your organisation.

As technical writer or documentation manager, how do we make ourselves and our teams resilient and flexible in the face of organisational change?

How can we cope when our company is acquired, merged or expanded?

In this presentation we’ll discuss how promoting your team correctly, aligning them within the organisation and finding engineering pain points are some of the key factors to ensure success.
We’ll also explore some of the challenges and opportunities of moving through multiple incarnations of a company, coping with change and how to keep your documentation set coherent throughout this time.
