    How to use root-cause analysis to promote information supply chain methodologies

    TC Dojo Master: Seth Park, NXP Semiconductors

    • TC Dojo Open Session
    • Cost: Free

    If your documentation process is implicated in a customer quality incident (CQI), Congratulations! You have the platform needed to shine a light on the problems you’ve been escalating for years. In this presentation, Seth Park will argue that errors in documentation are actually symptoms of underlying data flow issues. If you don’t get involved in root-cause analysis, you’ll end up being asked for more reviews and checklists when you really need a more effective method for transferring data amongst teams.

  • Death Proof Documentation

    TC Dojo Master: Liz Fraley, Single-Sourcing Solutions

    • TC Dojo Open Session
    • Cost: Free

    We're going to end the year talking about that documentation you need at the end: How do you document your life (and I don't mean journaling). It's a topic that, from a corporate perspective, very quickly becomes: What happens when your customer dies?

    Does your company have policies in place that dictate what happens when a customer dies? Are they well communicated? What happens to a server at hosting facility or all the services that are subscription-based? If you’re a consultant, who tells your customer you’re dead? Content professionals can assist in creating and respectfully publishing these kinds of policies. In this session, we’ll talk about the kinds of things we need to think about to ease the tasks of those who have to clean up a digital life.
