This is essential as documentation is critical to the success of a product or service.

Another presentation that should be on your list is “Making the Case for Documentation: Using Numbers to Drive Results.” In this session, Good Words LLC CEO, Caity Cronkhite will show you how to make a compelling business case for investing in documentation efforts.
