Deborah S. Bosley and Meg Morgan edited a special issue of Technical
Communication (Nov. 1991) that was devoted to collaborative writing.
While the entire issue would be helpful in situations such as this, a
couple of articles might be particularly relevant: Bosley's "Designing
Effective Technical Communication Teams" and Morgan's "Patterns of
Composing: Connections Between Classroom and Workplace Collaborations."

Good luck,
