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.

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?

Tony Markatos responds:

Damn straight! If I'm forced to coordinate with another writer on a project, only one of us is coming out alive!

Just kidding. There will always be a need to coordinate, and planned peer reviews are a good idea. However, by properly chunking the project, we reduce the amount of unplanned coordination required.
