Topic: "The Humorous World of Managing Documentation"

About the Event

Is there anything funny about ever-changing deadlines and requirements? Is working with uncooperative subject matter experts a side-splitting experience? Maybe not. There are steps you can take, however, to help make your management tasks more pleasant. This presentation applies to everyone involved in documentation—managers, manager wannabes, team leaders, or those who want to learn how to manage their manager.

Don't forget your business cards! We collect a business card from each attendee for a chance to win the registration fee for the Annual conference. The drawing takes place at the March meeting. The more meetings you attend, the more chances to win.
