Project Management for Technical Documentation

Optimize collaboration with other departments and master complexity
Customers are becoming more demanding, standards are constantly changing, and efficiency and cost control are required. The employees of the technical documentation department have to rely on the cooperation of several internal departments. Moreover, as one of the "last links" in order processing, the creation of technical documentation is very often subject to great time pressure. In order to fulfil these diverse requirements and tasks, the know-how as project manager is required.

In this two-day intensive seminar and a subsequent web conference, you will learn project management methods and tools for mastering the complexity of your editing projects. The focus is also on creating structures and processes that foster smoother cooperation with all stakeholders without having authority to issue instructions.
