Content is King

Content Is King…We Design, Develop, and Deliver Valuable Content

I had the opportunity to visit the Austin chapter in November 2012 and lead a program meeting discussion about Five Dysfunctions of a Team. I was impressed by the lively discussion as we shared our ideas and approaches to improving teamwork. Through this discussion, we were able to learn from each other and explore ideas I have collected.

Events that facilitate the exchange of ideas are a vital part of STC. As colleagues, we challenge each other to find better ways to solve problems, and then to share those ideas and solutions. I am impressed and inspired by how our community members share their ideas, debate various approaches, and help each other find new solutions. These communities, combined with the many educational offerings organized by STC, bring a vast amount of knowledge to the technical communication industry.
