Harry Hager asks:
So, Tony, you are advocating that tech writers individually go off in their
own corner, write their chunks of a large project, and then add it to the
pile of chunks without any coordinating or peer reviews in the meantime?

Jim Shaeffer chimes in:
If (note the IF) the up-front planning is done right, this is the way it
should work. In this case, any coordination or peer review, while necessary,
will be minimal. The "chunks" will be easy to knit together. If major
decisions and picky usage points are left until the peer review /
coordination phase, we are asking for trouble.

Of course, there are many degrees of planning, peer review and coordination
that can work in many combinations.
