Subject: Documentation titles
Hi, guys....long time.
My department has been expanded and I'll be managing it.
For the org chart (and for other reasons), my manager asked me what I
wanted to call the department. The my personal title is another issue
because our group just has never had someone who only does documentation
and they are still trying to come up with a slot in the hierarchy.
I just don't want to call it "Documentation" because the bank uses that
term as encompassing anything that isn't code as well as using it as a
I'll be responsible for:
- Regulatory submissions
- Functional, Technical, and Business Requirements Documentation
- Change Notices
- Instruction Manuals
- Methodology documents
- Procedure documents
- etc. (The scope is still being defined)
What department titles do you use or have you seen. I'm going to scan Job
Lists and Linked-In, but that I'd reach out here also.
