TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Cold, hard cash in huge bags with dollar signs on them. That is the ultimate
measure of productivity.
If your company/organization makes buttloads of money or fulfills its profit
equivalent (makes cats smile, astronauts into space, trees grow, whatever),
whether you use FramePorker 9.01.01.2.3.1. or a clay tablet and rocks is
basically irrelevant. In the end, what matters is: A) the job is done and
people are benefited in some way.
You'll probably never find a good productivity measuring model and you'll waste
more time trying to think one up than if you just did a good job.
So, get back to work, you. We don't pay you to THINK!
