My article in Intercom magazine was published in the July/August 2009 issue. It’s called, “Enhancing the Perceived Value of Your Communication Department in Hard Times.” I hope you get a chance to read it. It contains all kinds of creative ideas to increase the visibility of your department to avoid budget cuts by getting others on board with the value of what we do. Sometimes engineers and others don’t understand what technical writers do or why they are valuable. It’s up to us to educate them! Enjoy!
