Defining ourselves.

I'm a technical writer who just signed on with a CD-ROM publishing house. We
publish a monthly CD-ROM chock full of Texas case law for 500 lawyers, judges
and legal researchers. Currently we use TMS' Innerview system for authoring,
but we're contemplating a switch to Folio's Views system. One of my first
projects is to convert 67,000 cases of legacy data to SGML format.

My bosses do not know what to call me, so I'm taking suggestions. My job is
multi-faceted: I am devising and documenting a workflow system that
incorporates Microsoft Project and a bar code document control system. My
primary job is to spur along the programmers and act as a liasion between
them and the management. I have five people for whom I have responsibilty:
two programmers, a data processor and a legal editor.

Technical Writer and Documentation Specialist just don't seem accurate to
describe what I do. What do I put on my business cards?
