Normally, I would agree with all of Geoff's points. However,
based on your previous posts about your working situation,
if you still have the same issues and the same contractor,
you would be going into a management position with at
least one person who can't or won't follow directions, work
cooperatively in a team or adjust work habits in response
to feedback and shows indications of needing to be
spanked, micromanaged and required to meet imposed
deadlines, and your immediate manager has not done
much to support what efforts you have made to date to
deal with the situation on a co-worker/lead writer basis.

You may or may not need document management training.
You definitely need training in people management, and I
would put "dealing with problem employees" right at the
top of the list of classes to take.
