I use it to make the case for building a work request framework: http://techwhirl.com/skills/project/getting-started-on-managing-and-measuring-interdepartmental-technical-communication-requests/

This approach was helpful enough to get the CIO to stop cutting the department, when his VPs all told him they needed the technical writers.

Connie Giordano

Kind of a Friday question; no specific context or examples, just a general sort of query:

What do you do when ad hoc work threatens to overwhelm planned work?
