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.

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.
Thanks for this very interesting discussion. There are a couple of books
that that I've been exploring that may be of interest. Both are very
pragmatic but substantial and focus on project management -- not sure if
that is exactly what you're looking for, but they are both worth a read.
Process Quality Assurance for UML-Based Products by Bhuvan Unhelkar
Addison-Wesley Object Technology Series
This outlines quality and project management processes for software
development using the UML. It includes a CD-ROM with various templates for
Service- and Component-Based Development using the Select Perspective and UML
Apperly, Hofman, Latchem, etc.
This is a presentation of best practices for software development based on
proprietary software from Select Business Solutions. Even if you don't have
their product the book offers a very good discussion of using the UML to
drive project management. They do offer some interesting products, in
particular Select Process Director, which is a project management support tool.
