Stop trying to paint your hallway through the letterbox

A session at TCUK 2015 | Technical Communication UK

Thursday 1st October, 2015

10:45am to 11:30am (GMT)

About managing your, your colleagues’ and your users’ cognitive resources better, by avoiding the cognitive equivalent of keyhole surgery (something I see people doing at work all the time). I would give some examples of where I see this occurring and offer some suggestions of how to deal with it.
