Start Small, Think Big
Learn about the “start small, think big” approach that NETGEAR’s Documentation team used when moving from an unstructured Frame authoring environment to a DITA XML authoring environment. Lisa Pampuch focuses on the business case for making the change and the reasons for the start-small approach and discusses the additional deliverables that her team is producing thanks to the move to DITA. She also discusses DITA integration with NETGEAR’s Localization team.
What can the audience expect to learn?
The “start small, think big approach” that Lisa’s team took to moving to a DITA authoring environment should be very helpful to other companies who are thinking about moving to DITA but are worried about an “all-at-once” approach.
