Technical communicators concentrate their efforts on writing and production, but frequently QA is the weak link in the chain. Many of us rely on the "standard model" of documentation reviews, which amounts to a complete reliance on the hope that SME's will conduct an adequate review, find all the errors, and get their findings back to us. Rick Lippincott will present alternative methods and active plans for documentation testing, and how it benefits our profession. Wednesday, November 19, 6:30 PM at the Sheraton Lexington. Please visit the Programs page to register.
