After a successful release, the product manager feels extremely happy that the team met the commitments and delivered the software on time. However, when he probes the actual users for the feedback, the first reaction is “documentation sucks”. Why does this happen? Most of the developers and testers still follow the traditional approach of involving documentation folks towards the end of the release! This is paradoxical because when you have development and testing happening in agile approach how can you have documentation in traditional approach?
This session deals with the mindshift change that the entire value chain needs to make end-user documentation a critical part of the scrum team deliverables and bring it on equal pedestal as any other deliverable.
It emphasizes that technical writers should not feel marginalized with the fast paced development, testing, and delivery cycles. Instead, they must work very closely with the developers and testers because they no longer require to sit outside the room and walk in only after the bell rings! And the developers, testers, product owners should not consider documentation folks as the last leg of the product delivery cycle. They must all work as an integrated team, start-to-finish.
