I recognize this is a hot topic among many. In fact, I read the bulk
of the techwr-l threads dating back to 2003 and found mostly disdain
for the practice of grading staff with a matrix. I feel mostly the
same way, while at the same time understand a company's need for
objective measurements to justify an employee's salary.

All that aside, I am hunting for wheels so that I don't have to
reinvent them. Would anyone be willing to share a list of essential
skills for a Technical Communicator that could be used to (gasp)
an employee's salary increase?
