I have just completed a draft of a 70-page technical manual to be given to
new employees who join an IT team of 10 people. My next step is to request
that the 10 team members review the manual and offer any feedback they have.
What is the best way to solicit feedback? I'm reluctant to distribute an
electronic copy because I don't want people making changes to the document
without checking with me first. If I pass around the hard copy, should I
just ask people to write their comments/suggestions in the margins and write
their initials as well?
I'm new to this process and appreciate any advice you all have!
