Gil Yaker asks:

What's it like working on a team of tech writers? Lets say 1, A small team of 3-5 and 2, a larger team like the type that would work on a highly formalized project.

Tony Markatos responds:

It depends on how well the project is managed (planned). If the project was properly partitioned - "chunked" in TW terminology, then things will go pretty smoothly. (Note: the chunks become the work breakdown structure.)

In properly chunked projects, all procedure to accomplish a given task will be together. (The end-user will not have to jump around between different sections of the documentation to accomplish the task.)

In writing a properly chunked document, the TWs will not have to do a lot of coordinating between themselves. It is in coordinating the different chunks that major disagreements occur.
