Whenever I'm asked to provide information about anything, I
do a rather standard needs analysis. It gives me what I need
to know about the audience, how they will use the information,
and the environment.

Then, I set out to do a task analysis of the actual 'stuff'
that's going to be communicated. All along the way I'm talking
to people and gathering information.

By the time I'm actually writing a script I know a lot about my
client, my audience (including the culture), and the expectations
of both.

This approach serves me in every medium; tutorials (on line or on
paper, video/film, and interactive CD-ROM.
