I'm not in a position to respond directly to your questions, because I'm no longer employed as a technical writer by a "real" company (other than Major-Ideas, my own little writing shop). But I'm getting familiar with business white papers, because I hope to start writing them for real companies as a freelancer.

There's lots of information and a forum about writing and using white papers at Michael Stelzner's site I think it might be helpful to you.

Good luck,

white papers written by the executives? Wish you
could be, but aren't included? Have found it
doesn't work somehow (politically!!)? What is your
relationship with marketing? How have the
standards you set for your own docs been
disseminated and implemented in other written
materials? How much of a stickler are you?

Thanks, Kimberly ]]
