The success of a move to topic-based #authoring and/or #structuredwriting depends on the order of your steps – and good planning is key. You can’t make it up as you go along. Many current #manuals are like tutorials: They guide readers by example with lots of screenshots. They are easy to follow along with, but more difficult when you need to know about individual procedures or about scenarios that don’t match the example. Do you find these tactics helpful? What experiences have you had when converting #legacycontent into #structureddocumentation? Feel free to leave a comment.
Structured writing is a central part of the information mapping method for analyzing, organizing, and displaying knowledge in print and in the new online presentation of text and graphics. It is an approach to writing that focuses on the structure of content and it includes evaluating and defining types of content, applying and creating rules around the structure, validating the rules, and defining styles to apply to the content so you can publish it.

Structured documentation can be an overwhelming process for any organization. It seems to be a herculean task for personnel whose primary focus is on other tasks and documentation just comes as a part of it. In these cases, the purpose of structured documentation is likely to be lost. Further, the centralized question remains - how to choose a structure for documentation?
