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.
The TW department where I am currently employed is spread out over two
floors and the manager is asking for suggestions on how to keep the
"collaborative effort" going now that we are not sitting together. Any
Stairs. Elevator. Phone. E-mail. Meetings.
Seriously, my supervisor asked the same kind of questions when we started
spreading out to different customer areas and even used a contractor working
from home. It's the kind of thing their bosses must rate them on, and they
have to have some kind of plan.
