Ask the Expert: Team Culture and Motivation in Technical Writing Teams

Kai Weber


Fostering good team culture and motivation in a team of technical writers can be tricky. Some teams are distributed or not even a formal team. Some teams are not embedded well in development or engineering teams and their processes. And then there's agile which often has little to say how writers fit in.

We will start with a few points about general issues which many teams face and ideas what motivates and sustains a team of technical writers. For the main part, we will exchange questions, experiences, and ideas. You're welcome to contribute with questions and answers or to just listen. Hope to see you there!
