Beyond the Publication-Bringing the World of Technical Communication and Enterprise Content Strategy Together
Tuesday, 20 October 12 Noon EDT (GMT-4)

This webinar will discuss what content strategy is, the relationship between a content strategy and helping organizations scale, and how the technical communication content creation and iteration process is valuable across the organization.

The learning outcomes include:

  • Technical communicators can deliver value across multiple departments/teams in the organization because of their skills and knowledge of content creation, and also their unique understanding of the product(s).
  • Problems that technical communicators have been dealing with for a long time (such as version control, content duplication and content accessibility) are problems that other teams need to learn how to manage (e.g. marketing, sales, finance).
  • The role of the technical communicator can be elevated in the organization in many ways to leverage their unique and valuable knowledge – here's how to raise your hand, get involved, and make an impact.
