About this title:

Synopsis: Starting a Documentation Group is the only book devoted to getting a new group up and running in a small company. Drawing on the author's 20 years of experience in starting, rebuilding, and managing documentation groupsas well as input from many of his peersthis book provides a detailed collection of techniques, processes, and guidelines to help you quickly set up an efficient and professional documentation operation.

In addition, the appendixes include a description of the product development process, sample templates and job descriptions, and questions to ask during the hiring process.

Although Starting a Documentation Group was designed and written with new group leaders in mind, it is also full of relevant and useful information for veterans.

Focusing on the needs of small companies, Starting a Documentation Group provides information on:

How the experience of a start-up/small group is different from that of a large group/company The role of the documentation manager

Setting up your environment

How to develop a comprehensive, forward-looking documentation planand sell it to management

Determining a realistic schedule (or, at least, how to live with the time available) Planning for editing, production, and printing

Determining when extra help is needed and hiring accordingly

About the Author: Peter Hartman has over 25 years of experience developing documentation and managing documentation, trainmg, quality assurance, and marketing communications groups. He has specialized ln starting or rebuilding groups for start-ups and other small companies, and his ability to understand the nuts and bolts of corporate life has driven him to remain a truly hands-on manager. He has also gained significant experience in development process re-engineering and user interface design while working for such companies as Data General, Atex, Imaging Technology, Pilot Software, Easel Corporation, PTP Software, Implicit Software, and Riverton Software.

As a hands-on Information Design and Development Professional and manager, Peter has written over 80 manuals, and revised or edited countless others. In addition, he has published articles in various journals, including Computer Graphics World and DE magazine. In 1991, he published Junior Citizens: An Owners Manual, a humorous parody of both technical manuals and child-care books. He is a member of the Society for Technical Communication, and has presented on various topics at the annual InterChange conference sponsored by the Boston chapter.
