Yes, we know it: people don’t want to read. Unless your technical content is produced with several shades of gray, it’s probably not especially compelling reading on its own. If it doesn’t answer customers’ questions or help them reach their goals, they’re more likely to call support out of frustration. And if it’s stuck into massive PDFs or piles of unusable topics, customers are unlikely to find it. Of course, that saves them lots of reading time.

Dr. JoAnn Hackos, Comtech President and Director of the Center for Information-Development Management (CIDM), demonstrates how using a minimalist approach in developing content is more relevant today than ever before. Busy customers simply want simple help on performing a task and getting a job done. Learn what minimalism really feels like. Learn about designing minimalist information that gets your customers coming back for more.


Dr. JoAnn Hackos is President of Comtech Services, a content-management and information-design firm based in Denver, Colorado, which she founded in 1978. She is Director of the Center for Information-Development Management (CIDM), a membership organization focused on content-management and information-development best practices. Dr. Hackos and colleagues are called upon by corporate executives worldwide to consult on strategies for content management, development and organizational management, product interface design, customer studies, Web and traditional information architecture, and tools and technology selection.
