The flip side is that "dedicated-to-a-group" TWs probably know their
subject area better than "just any ol' TW" and having a "captive" TW
means managers don't have to consider other departments when juggling
"their" TWs' time.

OK, what about a centralized TW department that houses groups dedicated to
each area?
If we had a tech writing department that had groups of, say, five people
each (or as needed) for different areas of the company? Then the different
groups would gain some subject experience. Any thoughts? Then we would be
grouped for consistency in style and for hiring/evaluating, and support,
but would still be somewhat dedicated to certain areas of the department.
Would that work? - Heather
