Hello Techwhirl,

I write manuals for employees of a financial organization. I've now completed a few, and it's become clearer how they are being used. First of all, they are used as training materials by a trainer. Training here provides almost no material of their own. Secondly, they are meant as a reference if a question comes up during the procedure (each manual describes rules and procedures for processing a certain transaction type). They would also be used for individual learning by new employees.

I'm trying to think how to better accomplish both goals with one manual. I realize this isn't ideal, but seem to be stuck with it. Has anyone done this successfully? Is there a particular approach you could share?

Thank you,

Eileen Neumann
