Documentation standards to live by
Control the documentation chaos with these best practices
No matter what kind of work you do, your team needs clear, up-to-date internal documentation to help all members stay informed, be more efficient, and communicate clearly. The best way to get documentation that works is to establish documentation standards. These are the rules that guide the creation and distribution of documents within your team or organization.
With documentation standards, everyone on your team will be on the same page about how to develop documentation, how to distribute the documentation they create, and most importantly: where to find the documentation they need.
As you develop your team's documentation standards, a lot of questions might come up: What format should we use for a particular type of documentation? Where will our documentation live? This guide will give you a head start in answering those questions.
