What is the best process you've ever worked with (or dreamed of) that
enables technical authors to find out about changes/new projects etc

and communicate change. ;-) Basically, if it's in the plan, expect it

requires sign-off to make the change. If it happens without notice,
it's either backed out of the product or added into the schedule as
The key is communication. We use an e-mail notice system for every
check-in to a teamline, so if you don't know that a change was made,
it's really your own fault for not paying attention in meetings and to
