If you have heard of Agile Scrum and wondered what is was, you will be excited about our September meeting. This meeting is about working as a technical writer at a company that uses Agile Scrum business methods. Alyssa Fox is the Director of Information Development at NetIQ and has been speaking and writing about Scrum methodology for technical writers for years.
I am especially excited about this meeting because for the last several months, I have been working as a ScrumMaster for the documentation team in addition to being a technical writer. I think Scrum is such a great way to create innovative products. Scrum methodology trusts teams to do their best work and leaves them free to find solutions. I think this is the biggest reason why Scrum is so successful. One of the challenges of being a technical writer in a Scrum environemnt is that you have to be brave, make mistakes, and trust the team you are working with. I can’t wait to see how Alyssa’s team makes this work at NetIQ.
I hope you will join us to see how Scrum works effectively with technical documentation to create a complete product. See you on September 19th at 6:30 pm at Wyndham Vacation Ownership!
