According to a recent survey of documentation managers by TechCom Manager, 37.5% of respondents said their organization had “no formal documentation process”. Editor Steve Capri wrote of the results: “I was very surprised that almost 40 percent of respondents claim they don’t use a formal process at all. Could it be that some of us follow a formal process without even knowing it? Or could it be that many of us still need more guidance in this arena?” We venture to guess it’s the latter. What do you think?
