Is it possible to actually ‘work smarter’ and ‘think different’ about today’s tech comm’s concerns? Deadlines are tighter, budgets more constrained, and people resources are more constrained. Learn how one writing team at ARM reorganized itself to put the cliché into action. Learn how we reorganized a global team, measured reuse to help understand how they can tell you about your topic-based project.

Learn how thinking differently about multiple projects allowed us to increase document quality and meet critical deadlines all without increasing headcount.
