If you've navigated to this page, you've likely already realized either that the quality and timeliness of your organization's documentation can be improved, or that your documentation team isn't as productive as it could be - and quite probably both!
Don't be surprised - that's how it is for most businesses.
"An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field." - Nobel physicist Niels Bohr.
Documentation processes are the very narrow field I'm an expert in - improving them is what I do - that's my expertise.
I don't claim to have made all the mistakes that can be made in my narrow field, but with more than 20 years of experience working in it, I have experienced enough mistakes to know the pitfalls on the path to both higher documentation productivity and better documentation quality. And I can help you chart a course that avoids those mistakes.
In most businesses there is always room for improvement in documentation - especially in fast-growing companies! 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.
I can clarify the issues your documentation team is facing and recommend measures you can take to improve both your team's working conditions and its productivity. Win-win.
I work on-site and have work permits for the EU and EEA countries, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. I can also work remotely as your sparring partner via Teams/Zoom/whatever.
My qualifications? See here for more
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.
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.
