ANN: Add Value with Three Essentials of Communication

Make Your Team More Valuable with Three Essential Elements of Communic
ation

Join us at the STC Torontos Management Day on February 26 to
learn three ways to work and communicate more effectively.

Be Agile
Learn some common strategies for integrating documentation
activities into the software development cycle from Agile
development advocate and coach, Michael Sahota. Doing it
faster can mean doing it better.

Consider users
Learn about user-centred development and how information
developers can help to define the user experience. Qualicom
Innovations User Experience Manager, Stephen Chalastra, will
describe how interface design, the user experience, and
technical communication fit together.

Improve content through reuse
Learn how to improve your content through reuse, and what to
consider when shopping for technology to support your content
reuse strategy. Pamela Kostur (Parallax Communications), Bryan
Lynn (ThirtySix Software), and Jacques Fauteux (Front Runner
Training) combine their content reuse expertise to help you
plan your foray into reuse.

Get free software and win prizes!
All attendees will receive a free trial copy of SmartDocs Lite,
an MS Word add-in that integrates the power of content reuse
in the Word environment, and will be entered to win one of three
content reuse packages, including a content reuse consultation,
a full SmartDocs license for one year, and SmartDocs training.
Other door prizes include Agile and Lean software process
consulting. STC Toronto Management Day is sponsored by Front Runner
Training. For more info and to register, visit the STC Toronto
