Good morning all,
My smallish (65) but growing software company, where I
am one of two technical writers, has undergone a major
reorg. One of the changes is the establishment of a
PMO (Project Management Office) to manage all projects
-- smallest to largest. The reporting structure is
that we all -- qa, engineers, writers, designers, BAs,
etc -- report directly to a director but at the same
time can also be reporting to one or more PMs
depending upon the project(s) we've been assigned to.

experiences and opinions.
