One of the principals of the company I work for, Navis Corporation, is
asking my techwriter compadre and I for a measure of our productivity in
relation to "industry standards." Apparently, he wants to know if we are
performing as well as other tech writers doing similar work. I think he
also wants a baseline against which to measure our future productivity so
he can determine if what sort of raises we deserve, etc.

Can anyone help out with A) providing a standard for measuring tech writer
productivity, and B) providing a basis for comparing our productivity to
"industry standards?" How productive is the average tech writer doing
end-user GUI print documentation? Be much obliged for any helpful info.

It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for
what we do not do.
