#37 How to address Technical Writing skills: change request accepted

A number of user organisations have remarked that there is not a neat match for Technical Writing skills.

Most SFIA users home in on

  • Information content authoring
  • Information content publishing

I think there's also a good case to relate the Technical Writing skill to one of it's key outcomes - which is delivering learning to its intended audience so Learning Delivery could be relevant.

However - none of this is particularly satisfactory for Technical Writers and the role is still alive and kicking in many organisations.
