I am interested to find out various ways a tech writer's workload
is measured and what metrics are used to allocate their resources.
For example, some organizations have a ratio of number of writers to
developers. Others use a ratio of writers to number of pages, etc.

How is your workload measured?
What metrics does management use to allocate writer resources?

Thank you,
