Is your management asking you to reduce documentation costs? Do you create information that few customers use? Do you have fewer people to create and maintain the volume of information you've created in the past? Are you pursuing content management and structured writing?
If your answers are "yes," this workshop meets your needs directly. Minimalist documents take time and effort to design, but once you have them in place, the savings are clear. Minimalist documents cost less to produce, are easier to maintain, and reduce requests for customer support.
Minimalism is the key to getting the maximum return on your single-sourcing investment.
Minimalism isn't only for simple products or targeted at beginners. A minimalist approach makes complex products easier to understand and gets critical information more directly into the hands of experts.
People attending this workshop report they've reduced their documentation by 50 to 75 percent.
A hands-on approach: You work on your own documents for more than 50 percent of class time. Be sure to bring a sample of past work, work-in-progress, or planned work that you want to trim. If you have a team working on reducing document size and cost, we recommend coming to the workshop together.
