I simply cannot agree with your position.

You [Tony Markatos] seem to say that tech writers are replaced because the written material was inadequate but it wasn't poor writing technique. The failure was alway due to [improper analysis, planning, estimating, or overall organization].

Tony Markatos responds:

Yes, that is what I have seen. And with fifteen years experience, I have seen a lot.

Then you seem to say that even when development efforts fail it's never because of lack of knowledge of coding technique. The failure is
always due to [improper analysis, planning, estimating, or organization].

Harry Hagar said:

Unless I'm misinterpreting your position, you are saying that there
are no incompetent tech writers; there are no incompetent developers, at least not incompetent enough to really screw up a project or
directly lead to the failure of a project.

Tony Markatos responds:

Oh no, there ARE plenty of incompetent TWs (and developers). Analysis, estimating, planning, and organizing are very important TW (and developer) skills.

We agree to disagree.
