The Craft of Technical Writing
Today, access to clear, relevant, and useful information increases any organization’s competitive advantage. At the heart of information management is the technical writer who is tasked to communicate technical information in a manner that can be understood by and useful to the intended readers. Such information has become vital in the organization’s decision-making cycle. Developing the craft of technical writing is easier said than done.
