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.
1. Tell me about your background and/or education in technical communications or communications. (A manager with actual technical communications experience would be a new experience for me.)
2. Describe an ideal workflow for a tech writing project.
3. What qualities do you like to see in the members of a tech writing group. What is a good tech writer?
4. What do you see as the manager's role when leading a technical writing team?
Kind of obvious questions, but this is what I would want to know, as a writer.

Subject: Interviewing your prospective next manager
A question for the writers (not managers, please) on the list...
Suppose you were asked to interview candidates for a position
as your next technical publications manager (i.e., managing
you), and provide input on the candidates to the person who in
turn would be that person's manager (for the sake of context,
let's say that's me). What questions would you ask the candidates,
keeping in mind that you would be providing input on them based
on the answers you got back?
Feel free to reply on or off list.
