The five Cs to me mean:

Clarity
Correctness
Conciseness
Complete
Chronologically acceptable (on time - OK, so this was a stretch)

And, as anyone who has taken one of my tech writing courses can tell
you, we writers really only do 5 things - CIAO and R:

Conceptualize
Investigate
Assimilate
Organize
Regurgitate


Respectfully submitted,
John

Hi Techwrlrs,

My boss (the VP of Engineering) presented us with an overview of our
respective jobs. Each job contained a "swing thought." The swing thought
for
Documentation was "The 5 C's: Concentration, Cohesion, Convention,
Contrast,
and Convection."

I have never seen this before. Have any of you? Does he have the correct
5
"c" words? And if so, what do they mean?

I can figure out Cohesion and Convention, and if Contrast is referring
to
the design of docs, I've got that one as well, but Concentration and
especially Convection are leaving me puzzled.

Can anyone help me determine what exactly my swing thoughts are?

Thanks,
Robin Whitmore
