A memo is a start; think of it as your cover letter. Most project managers
eat, drink, and breath gantt charts, so open up Project or TimeLine or what-
ever project management software your company uses and scope out the upcoming
projects. One chart will show you as the lone writer with time lines
out well into the next century. The other chart or charts will add one writer
at a time or differentiate between the productivity of junior/intermediate/
senior writers until the documentation delivery schedule more closely matches
the company's production goals.
