Is your doc team stuck in the ‘90s?

Gone are the days when technical writers could “just write.” To be effective in 2017, you must be concerned about search engine optimization (SEO), content usability, and customer experience. You might need to create nontraditional deliverables like videos and blog posts. And don’t forget social media and metrics. Building a modern doc team can seem impossible if your headcount and resources are already limited. What skills do you need, and where can you find those skills?

What can the audience expect to learn?

Get real-world examples of how you can work cross-functionally to get the resources you need and how to leverage the talent you already have on your team to fill the gaps. You’ll find out how making time for things other than “just writing” will improve your teams’ value to the business and help your writers gain crucial future-proof skills.
