How To Dramatically Improve Documentation Team Efficiency

Team efficiency tools and philosophies are a dime a dozen, but what works best for your documentation team? 

Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and Shannon McCue, Technical Communication Director for Aristocrat, for a discussion on bolstering documentation team efficiency in your organization. 

Writers are often shared between departments, teams, and projects, making it sometimes difficult to accurately track how their time is being used and figure out how to optimize it. Our guest will present the pros and cons of having a technical writing team embedded with the development team and the pros and cons of having a technical writing team separate from development. Both sides have their merits and deficiencies. Let’s explore them together.
