The JoAnn Hackos Workshop Series announces the Minimalism: Creating Manuals People Can Use workshop in Golden, CO March 26-27, 2008, taught by JoAnn Hackos. We invite you to join Dr. Hackos in understanding the key to getting the maximum return on your single-sourcing investment.

Learn how to reduce the quantity of documentation you produce by focusing on the needs of the users, eliminating unnecessary verbiage, and aligning your documentation strategy with your company’s market position.

Minimalist documents take time and effort to design, but once you have them in place, the savings are clear. Minimalist documents cost less to produce, are easier to maintain, and reduce requests for customer support. Minimalism isn't only for simple products or targeted at beginners. A minimalist approach makes complex products easier to understand and gets critical information more directly into the hands of experts.

People attending this seminar report they’ve reduced their documentation by 50 to 75 percent. Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
