Subject:Technical Writers per Developer From:Chris Grierson <ab703 -at- DAYTON -dot- WRIGHT -dot- EDU> Date:Thu, 12 Jan 1995 07:26:36 -0500
The Technical Communications Department here is interested in determining
some kind of "standard" or accepted figure for the number of technical
writers that a company should have per developer. The Society for
Technical Communications was unable to help, and a search of the
literature did not produce any results. Any numbers from other
organizations, or any ideas on how to find this data would be appreciated.
