I may be only one in a chorus of voices on this subject, Bill, but I'd
recommend, urge and demand that you or your company buy JoAnn Hackos' book
on documentation project management. We use it, and we've recommended it to
clients and colleagues alike. Sorry, don't have the ISBN or even the
official title, because I loaned my copy to another company and haven't seen
it back on the shelf yet. Her book has all the information you're seeking.
