Welcome!

If you've navigated to this page, the chances are you already realize that your documentation quality can be improved, or that your documentation team is not as effective as it could be - and quite probably both! Don't be surprised - in most companies there is always room for improvement in documentation - especially in fast-growing companies!
This is mainly because the documentation team all too often faces conflicting priorities (which result in stop-start work and multi-tasking - both killers of productivity), nice-to-have tasks sneaking in, and overloading. Both quality and efficiency fall as a result. It doesn't have to be this way...
I can help you clarify the issues your documentation team is facing and suggest measures you can take to improve both your team's working conditions and its productivity. Win-win.

About Me

about-me

"An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field." - Nobel physicist Niels Bohr.

Improving documentation processes is what I do - that's my expertise.

I don't claim to have made all the mistakes that can be made in the narrow field of documentation, but with over 18 years of experience working on some of the largest documentation projects in Europe, I have experienced enough mistakes to know the pitfalls on the path to better documentation quality and higher documentation productivity.

That means I can help you chart a course that will avoid them. And to you, that means both savings and a better chance of meeting your goals on time.

 

I work on-site and have work permits for the EU and EEA countries, Australia and New Zealand. I can also work as your sparring partner on a fixed-budget basis via teleconferencing.

"An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field." - Nobel physicist Niels Bohr.

Improving documentation processes is what I do - my expertise.

Typically only approx. 20% of documentation time is spent on value-addition (content creation). Most time is spent on rework and handling documents - tasks that can either be reduced, or automated, or even outsourced.

My objective is to increase the percentage of time spent on value addition to >70%.

I offer over 25 years of experience working on some of the largest documentation projects in Europe, with over 11 years as either a documentation line manager or documentation project manager.

Combine managerial overview with hands-on expertise…

During that time I have experienced enough mistakes and dead-ends to help steer your project around the many pitfalls along the way - resulting in reduced costs and a better chance of meeting your goals on time.
