Tech Comm Trends: Providing Value as a Generalist in a Sea of Specialists – with Tom Johnson

May 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for our May 21st Chapter meeting, featuring Tom Johnson, blogger, influencer, and Amazon technical writer.

Trends in technical communication can be hard to decipher, even when looking at data. But one underlying trend is that technology seems to be getting more specialized and complex. This trend toward specialization is driving up the value of technical knowledge, making it more prized than writing skills. To handle the complexity, technical writers may find that they are playing increasingly collaborative roles with engineers to create the needed documentation. To drive up their value in organizations, technical writers should look for ways to collaborate more skillfully with engineers in creating content.
