Re: Need help please
We are a new company, and I have a problem. My problem is the head of marketing, a VP.
This gentleman is very creative and intelligent. He also considers techncial writing as a subset of marketing.
For example, at the moment marketing is developing a white paper on software architecture. I've never worked in a shop where that documentation type is done by marketing.
He considers that all white papers to be marketing's responsibility, with the content provided by marketing (him).
Look and feel, font colors and styles, bullet styles - all marketing. He insists on having input into and approval over everything that goes out publically, such as our Installation guide.
Are there any technical leads or department heads or field laborers like myself in TECHNICAL WRITING who can tell me what a reasonable division of work between technical writing and marketing might be?
